The spectacular two-storey neo-renaissance main building of the manor was designed by Carl Timoleon von Neff in 1866–1872. A number of paintings in Russian tsar palaces, churches of St Petersburg, Moscow and London as well as pastoral scenes depicting Estonian peasants were painted by the well-known artist. The grand light grey staircase of Carrara marble, a present from Tsar Aleksander II, still leads guests to the hall with a gorgeous white fireplace and doors crowned by paintings created by the artist himself. Muuga manor is also known as the childhood home of the Estonian writer Eduard Vilde.
Muuga manor, one of the most beautiful manors in Estonia, is located at the edge of the Pandivere Upland and at the same time at the edge of the Estonian largest wild forest area Alutaguse. Pandivere is also called a Lime State on the Spring of Springs, because most of Estonian rivers start from here. Alutaguse is a habitat of several rare animals, such as flying squirrels, lynxes, etc.
At a distance of 15 km from Muuga there is another UNESCO World Heritage site in Estonia – a survey point of the Struve Geodetic Arc. On the way there you can see Kellavere Hill and on it a green round radar station guarding the eastern border of the EU.
