Nicholas Roerich' Memorial Estate in Izvara
October 13, 2015 16:16

This place became the major source of inspiration for the great Russian artist and thinker Nicholas Roerich, who created about 7000 unique paintings over his life span.
The Roerichs' family acquired the manor in 1872 and owned it for 28 years. The estate became a true "patrimonial nest" for young Nicholas Roerich. Here he found rest, peace and inspiration, and enjoyed the harmony of nature.
Now the Memorial Estate of Nicholas Roerich is a museum complex which consists of unique monuments of archeology, architecture, history and culture. It is a wonderful nature area with an ancient park and spring lakes. The complex now consists of nince estate buildings of the 18th - early 20th centuries.
The museum was founded at the initiative of the artist's elder son Yury Roerich, who returned to Russia. He is famous for his scientific studies of the Oriental and in particular Tibetan history and culture. Yury Roerich brought to Russia the priceless heritage left by his father, including paintings, books, and  works of literature, which had been published outside Russia. This is what laid the foundation for the future museum collection.
The museum staff often arrange various conferences, festive programs, poetic recitals and musicales, as well as international peace-making actions.
Address: Izvara Village, Volosovsky  District, Leningrad Region
