    We have created a Cultural Center, which is an object of social entrepreneurship, on the initiative of the friends of our volunteer community. It is a unique memorial place where the famous Museum-Estate of the great artist Nicholas Roerich is located. We are working on improvement of this place, helping the Museum and the rural settlement to create a harmonious environment.
