Description

Vasta late Baroque house was commissioned in the late 18th century by Karl Ludwig von Ritter. The manor park and buildings are symmetric and clearly defined, as formal garden style dictated. At its perimeter, the park is delineated by a metre-high limestone wall.
The manor house, used as a school since 1940, has undergone several rounds of restoration. The main hall is a real art and history experience as its ceiling is decorated with palm fronds and rosettes There are also mural paintings, many centuries old, uncovered in 2004.
Local folklore and cultural traditions are important subjects of the school’s program. The history of Vasta has its own story to tell as Friedrich Reinhold Kreutzwald, the compiler of the Estonian national epic, had his wedding here in 1833.
