Sangaste Castle and manor park are one of the most outstanding examples of historicism in the Baltic States. The most remarkable features of the castle are its gothic-style foyer, magnificent party halls and English-style hunting hall. An interesting acoustic effect is achieved with the arched pillars by the entrance: anything whispered in one corner can be clearly heard in the opposite corner. The castle was designed by architect Otto Pius Hippius, who was inspired by the famous Windsor Castle in England. It originally had 99 rooms – because only the tsar could have 100 or more rooms.
Please note: due to renovation work, Sangaste Castle will only reopen to the public in May 2012.
