Innovators of their time and modern countryside living
Learn more about the interesting people who then and now are in charge of the Baltic Manors
Many manors are still places, where families live. Either because their family have owned the place for several generations, or because they were bought in recent times. For some manorial life is connected to conducting large scale agriculture. For others manorial life is part of being in the hotel or culture business. Manor owners or tenants still help keeping manor culture alive – but often in new and unexpected ways. Especially in the eastern countries of the Baltic Manors Region the gaps and changes of utilization after World War II, the soviet/GDR times and after the German wall came down are giving a very interesting perspective on the manorial heritage. Urban people form the cities come to the countryside and literals fall in love with the buildings… and sometime never leave again. But also historic figures gave a surprisingly modern impact to the education, health system and society at their time, especially in Scandinavia. In Denmark, for instance, you will meet very unconventional utilizations in former manor houses and estates, like a safari park or a winery that makes cherry wine.
