About Janeda



Jäneda is a small village in northern Estonia. It is located in Lääne-Viru County (from autumn 2005) and is a part of Tapa Commune.

The village hosts an old manor, called Yendel, now converted to a museum and conference center. The manor was owned in the early 1900s by Countess, later Baroness, Moura (Maria Zakrevskaya Benckendorff) Budberg, who has been called the "Mata Hari of Russia" and who was close to Sir R. H. Bruce Lockhart, Russian writer Maxim Gorki and H.G. Wells.
