Location

The Manor of P├╝haj├Ąrve, presently known as the P├╝haj├Ąrve Holiday Resort, belonged to knight called Hermann and Otto von Uexk├╝ll. At that time the name of the manor was Wollust. Since 1836 upon the request of the new owner - Countess von Stackelberg - the manor was named Heiligensee (Holy Lake). In the 1920s, P├╝haj├Ąrve Holiday Resort manor became the popular and elite summer holiday location among the Estonian artists and other creative people. In 1940s a holiday resort was built into the P├╝haj├Ąrve manors building complex, which with small intervals operated for almost 60 years.

Accordingly to a legend, Lake P├╝haj├Ąrv was named after a sacred oaktree grove on the northern bank of the lake. For hundreds of years this magnificient lake has been kept sacred and magical place, which banks have witnessed the celebrations of Midsummer Nights, singing days and summer music concerts. Accordingly to the historical records the resourceful Lake P├╝haj├Ąrv has required also many sacrifices.
