The family inherited the large estate from its hard working ancestors and also the obligation to care for it during their lifetime. The estate measures 170,000 square meters, with the family house at its center. The house tells the family story from its very beggings.
Because life in this region was not easy, many of the ancestors left to seek work elsewhere, including the coal mines of North America. They supported their family back home and sent money to build out the family estate. The latest generation lived through the Homeland war of 1991 and the complete devastation of the central family house. With great persistance and due respect towards the past generations the estate was rebuilt and in part revived as a rural tourism destination. Due to this effort young generations were able to stay on their ancestral land.
