What awaits you
Roerich Gallery Your journey to Roerich Karelia will begin with a visit to an exhibition of paintings by the renowned artist. You will see a panorama of the creative and spiritual path of Roerich and his family, and you will understand why the Karelian period can be considered a kind of “moment of truth”. I will tell you about Roerich's expeditions to India, China, Mongolia and Tibet and the artist's cultural initiatives, as well as the master's miraculous healing
Linnavuori Fortress Further, our path lies to the Karelian rock fortress Linnavuori of the XII century. On the way, you will hear about the agricultural community of Riekkalansaari and its heroic 300-year resistance to the onslaught of robber squads operating in the vastness of Ladoga. Here I will tell you about the mystical "Ariavart", the homeland of the ancient Aryan people, and the role of this place in the work of Nicholas Roerich
Ladoga skerries From the island of Toulon, where the Roerich family lived, we will go on a water excursion around the water area of Ladoga. You will immerse yourself in the world of the majestic Ladoga Skerries, which in 1917-1918 became the true creative workshop of the great singer of the North. From the boat you will see the unforgettable natural monuments of the Northern Ladoga area - the islands of Honkasalo, Leivasaari, Kaarnesaari, captured on Roerich's canvases.
