The mansion house of Sangaste manor is one of the most gorgeous historical buildings in Estonia. The crenellated gables and walls, small towers and arch windows makes it a real fairytale castle. The mansion house in the style of the English Gothic Revival was built in 1879-1883 and the architect was Otto Pius Hippius. According to the tradition the most beautiful building was ordered by Friedrich von Berg, when the father of his beloved had rejected his wooing in Scotland, by noting that the fiancé comes from a poor and wild land. The access to the castle has been located under the Tudor arch veranda. The representative rooms are located on the first floor of the building. The most gorgeous are the arched vestibule, eight-cornered dome hall reaching through two floors, cabinet with Moorish decor and the dining room in English style with dark wooden finish. The outhouses are numerous, several of them are red brick stone buildings similar to the mansion house. The forest park of 75 hectares is rich in species. The managing of the manor was on top at the end of the 19th century, in 1912 the manor of Sangaste was declared the best in Russia. The noble family of Berg was not too big, but important. Friedrich Wilhelm Rembert von Berg (1794–1874) was the marshal, the Russian commander, the Finnish general governor and the Polish lieutenant. As the Finnish governor he favoured the spread of the Finnish language and the strengthening of the Finnish citizenship. The last owner of Sangaste, Friedrich von Berg (1845–1938), was the well-known plant-breeder in the whole Europe. Berg applied all modern agricultural and zoo technical methods. The Estonian bred Tori horse was bred from the stallion of Sangaste manor. He had positive attitude towards the peasants and did a lot for their educating and modernisation of farm housing. More than 1000 peasants gathered to the funeral of the count in 1938 that created the kilometres length espalier on the way from the manor to the church. Today, the castle is a visting center and serves as the place for wedding ceremonies and welcomes all romantic souls.
