Šlokenbeka Manor

Description

Nowadays the Šlokenbeka Manor ensemble is among the most unique and original cultural monuments in Latvia; it was first
mentioned in writings in 1484. It is one of very few fortified medieval manor samples in the Baltic States and the only one in Latvia,
which has preserved up to the modern times.

The Šlokenbeka Manor was first mentioned in historical sources after 1484, when according to the historians its construction was started to protect the nearby Tukums from enemy attacks. From the oldest manor constructions, the portholes in the walls have been preserved to the modern times.

A tour of the Šlokenbeka Manor will teach about the history, economic activity and social life of the manor. The manor offers wine tasting in its 400-year old cellar, where you will have an opportunity to taste the products of winemakers of Kurzeme. The manor premises and the courtyard can be hired for festive and corporate events, but if you wish to stick around, you can stay overnight at the manor hotel and enjoy a lovely meal at the manor pub.

The manor also houses the Latvian Road Museum where you can learn about the development of the Latvian road industry.
