Symposium site

The Symposium will be held in Sagadi (on the premises of the Sagadi mansion) on August 19 - 21, 1999.

Sagadi is one of over a thousand manor houses in Estonia, many of them with grand buildings and lavish parks. The Sagadi manor near the Haljala-Vősu road in the Lahemaa National Park in North Estonia currently houses Sagadi Forest Centre, which provides information and training about forestry and nature reserves.

The Sagadi manor was first mentioned in written documents in 1444, during 1684-1919 it belonged to the Focks, the present manorhouse with a Rococo interior was built in 1749-53. The additions and the Classicist facade date from the end of the 18th century. 17 from the former 52 buildings have been renovated. There is a large park with a pond and an orchard.
