Võisiku Manor[edit]

Võisiku estate (German: Woiseck) was first mentioned in 1558. The current building was constructed in the second half of the 18th century. A veranda was added at a later date.[2]

Timotheus Eberhard von Bock (1787-1836), about whom Jaan Kross has written one of his most well-known novels, The Czar's Madman, lived at Võisiku manor.

Chess player and endgame composer Friedrich Amelung was born at Võisiku Manor in 1842.
