Udriku is a village in Kadrina Parish, Lääne-Viru County, northeastern Estonia, where the Udriku manor, a national architectural monument built in the early nineteenth century, is situated.

Udriku manor[edit]

Udriku estate (German: Uddrich) was founded in 1642 and belonged to the Baltic German Rehbinder family until the agrarian reforms following Estonia's independence in 1919.[1] The current, neoclassical building is from 1803, and currently houses a nursing home.[2] Some of the original interiors such as painted ceilings and plaster decorations are still preserved.[3]
