There are people who, when they want to be heard by their audience, speak in a quiet voice. In just the same way, the quaint parish of Liepupe resembles this same rare character trait. As you approach, you feel like wide-open, friendly arms are heartily, expectantly inviting you in. /Heinz Pirang, 1926/
Garden and park
The park was created in the 18th and 19th centuries, as an ensemble for the estate. One can still sense its underlying structure. The von Sangers had to create the Liepupe estate park in the late 19th century almost from nothing, although they did not deviate from the regular planning established more than a century earlier. The vegetation currently planted in the park reflects the same plants from around the year 1890; older trees did not survive.
