Ungru manor ruins

The Ungru manor, now in ruins, used to represent one of the most impressive Neo-Baroque buildings in Estonia, even though the manor was never fully finished. Its sophisticated footprint and the numerous baroque volute ornaments on its gables are characteristic of the castle.
Interesting to know: the Ungru manor was an almost exact copy of the Merseburg castle in Germany. After World War II the manor fell into the hands of Soviet troops, and in 1968 the chief of the airfield decided to use the ruins of the manor to fill the holes in the runway. About one-third of the manor was torn down. Fortunately, the rest of it was preserved. Compare the neat ruins of the manor to the contrasting Soviet airfield ruins next to it.
