The white palace in the Gothic style has long attracted photographers, connoisseurs of unique architecture, and simple romantics. The latter especially like the legend of this place. So, they say that the arboretum built a sugar factory for his wife. Even in winter, flowers grew for a luxurious woman in the park. One day she fell ill with consumption and went to be treated by the sea, where she started an affair with an officer. The husband learned of the betrayal of his wife and, that she never forgot about his grave sin, installed a 6-ton block in the garden. Walking along with the old manor, you can see this stone. Locals believe that he fulfills the desire if you touch him and think about what you want more than anything else in the world. Also on the estate, there is an old-timer – 600-year-old oak. He’s the only one who knows what’s going on here.
