Salnavas muizas parks 9934 1In the end of the 8th century the complex of Salnava Manor with a beautiful park appeared. Regular plants of the manor remained only by the former house of a landlord, but planning of the rest of the territory is free.

The area of the park is 7.8 ha; about one hectare of land is occupied by ponds of complicated forms. Pleasant is the central pond with romantic islands and two glades with rare trees and lanes. The landscape is completed with a boulder and a secular lime-tree (girth is 5.5 m). They say that land for the church hill was taken from the ponds.

The park of Salnava Manor leaves an impression of virgin nature.
