Lielplatone Manor

In the 19th century the manor was the property of the dynasty of Baron von Hahn. The manor house was built during the time period of 1845-1860. The initial design of the building was planned by E.J.A.Strauss, the architect of Courland Province and rebuilt and extended from 1859-1860.

The manor is surrounded by 20 ha of park with ancient avenues and includes a house for servants, a laundry house, a chapel, a pond, the cemetery of the Hahn dynasty and more. Various legends surround the place which you can discover during your visit at the manor. Currently the manor houses a school.

The laundry house Vešūzis

The building consists of three floors, of which each has been developed to represent its historical functions: on the first floor, everyone can learn how the ancient laundry washing and ironing process took place; the second floor houses the laundry drying room; and the third floor is home to the laundress' room.  The laundry house is a original and authentic part of the complex of Lielplatone Manor.
