dr. Art. The book VALMIERMUIŽA by Jānis Kalnačs is a laconic story about one of the largest manors in Vidzeme, which existed alongside the small town of Valmiera until the First World War. The book traces the development of the vast Valmiermuiža complex, which included more than forty buildings and powerful territories, up to the present day.
The cultural and historical heritage of Valmiermuiža has fascinated many researchers in the last 20 years, however, Dr. Art. Jānis Kalnačs’s book is the first such comprehensive study. It collects information about the owners of Valmiermuiža, among whom is the predecessor of the British King Charles III, Prince Pēteris Augustus Friedrichs of Holstein-Beck, and in the book you can also learn about tenants and guests, construction and conservation efforts.
