Vihula is a village in Vihula Parish, Lääne-Viru County, in northern Estonia, on the territory of Lahemaa National Park.

Vihula manor[edit]

The earliest references to an estate go back to 1501. During much of its history, it has belonged to different Baltic German aristocratic families. During the Soviet occupation of Estonia, the manor housed a collective farm. The present main building dates from after 1892, when the earlier house was destroyed in a fire. Architect of the new building was Friedrich Modi. It is an irregular building with neo-Renaissance details. Several of the older outbuildings, such as a palm house and a "coffee house", also survive and together contribute to the present ensemble.[1]
