Museum and park
Today it is a museum and is opening its doors to the public with guided tours. The wooden manor Svartå is embedded in one of the biggest private historical parks of Finland.
Svartå Manor is situated close to the small village called Svartå or Mustio in Finnish. The Manor is one of the most precious manor houses in Finland.
It was built between 1783 and 1792 by Magnus Linder II. The manor house is the largest non-ecclesiastic wooden building in Finland. The architecture is a mix of the two consecutive styles rococo and neo-classicism and the Gustavian style dominates the interior. Special features in the main building are the parquet floors, one made in four kinds of wood and on the second floor is a unique bedroom where one king (Gustav III) and two emperors (Alexander I and Alexander II of Russia) have slept.
Probably the most glorious time in Svartå Manor was during the ownership of Hjalmar Linder in the first years of 1900. He owned altogether 64 000 hectares of land and one of the first cars in Finland, which he brought here in 1902. Among others the Swedish painter Louis Sparre and the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius were Hjalmar Linder’s guests in Svartå.
The wooden castle is embedded in one of the biggest private historical parks of Finland. Originally it was designed as a baroque park in 1787 but in the late 19th century Friedolf Linder renewed the park into an English style of park. He planted many exotic trees from all over the world, which are unusual species for Finland.
The park is nowadays a retreat for the soul with its winding paths, romantic bridges, statues, follies and the unique water lily path over the water. The park and the castle are situated close to the old picturesque village of Svartå, which was an iron foundry village from the late 16th century. Many traditional red and yellow houses are left from the times of the ironworks.
