This is the biggest extant manor ensemble, which consists of 34 buildings and a beautiful park. The founder of the ensemble was Teodor von Ropp, who built a classicist palace and subsidiary buildings in the first part of the XIX century, having classicist and romanticism elements. This ensemble extends along a curved compositional axis in the territory of 1 km, which borders with the road from Pakruojis to Linkuva and Kruoja stream. The building of the palace irradiates with grandeur, its architectural style belongs to the Late Classicism. It is said that the founder himself designed it with the help of the French language teacher Frederic Dubois de Montpereux. There is a spacious square dancing hall in it. In other buildings, beginning with the lodge of a gatekeeper, and ending with a water mill, contrastive decoration is used: the walls are made of stone and gravel, the rims of apertures and order elements are plastered and whitewashed.
Now this building is restored. You can not only rest in this manor, but also get acquainted with remarkable architecture and remaining works of art.
