Maardu manor is located close to Tallinn and as such, this gorgeously-built and perfectly renovated manor provides one of the best opportunities to see an historical manorial environment. The manor was first mentioned in 1389. It had belonged to the families of Taube and Fersen until, upon the orders of Czarina Catherine II, it was transferred to Danish General Hermann Jensen Bohn in 1729, who later married Katharina von Brevern. From that point on, the manor belonged to the Brevern family until it was confiscated in 1919. It is an important point in Estonian culture that Maardu manor's owner, H J von Bohn, financed the printing of the first Estonian language Bible in 1739. The central part of the Maardu mansion is one of the best surviving Baroque manor houses in Estonia. It was completed in the 1660s by Jakob Stael von Holstein (in a similar fashion to Palmse mansion). The lower wings were built in the19th century. In the arched basement there is a well preserved fireplace with a mantle chimney. There are preserved ceiling paintings in six rooms which date back to the19th century. The most important of the remaining buildings provide a taste of the 18th century, near an arched barn in front of the main building. Maardu manor was renovated from 1976 to1978 for Tallinn's poultry farm. In 1995 it was purchased by the Bank of Estonia. There are conference rooms for 30 people, five party halls for up to 150 people and a sauna.
