The architectural ensemble of the manor complex developed at the side of the Vadakste River. The manor-house was built at the side of the river opposite the household buildings and servants' house creating the closed yard. The watertower was built near the houshold part of the complex. At the top of the near hill is situated the windmill, but downhill closer to the road besides the river was built the watermill.

The present palace was built for Barons' von Nolken's family in 1881-1882. Its architectural forms were inspired by rich forms of French Baroque palaces and decorative motifs of Neo-Renaissance. The project was made by architects D. R. von Siverss and M. Shervinsky

The park at the palace was created in the second half of the 19th century by Earl von Reiter. One part of the park is shaped in terraces at the slope of the riverside. Baron von Nolken continued creation of the park in English landscape style at the opposite side behind the main road to the palace.

Now the palace houses Ruba Elementary School. So be careful from children.
