All the territory of small Estonia is the unique museum in the open air. Different times are living in its landscape: geological, mythological and historical. Some spaces of Estonia manifest themselves as eternity and infiniteness: sea distance, huge boulders, drops of birch rocks, river canyons with waterfalls; other ones, such as broken ground, edges of the forest, are full of lyrical-poetic source. All of this had an influence on the people character, his independent self-sufficient temper with delicate approach to beauty and harmony.
Estonia – is the unique geo-cultural space with original national color of folk and professional creativeness. It made Estonian culture important and necessary component of the general human culture.
Centuries-old history of Estonia keeps the traces of peaceful and military contacts. But the future of mankind will be free spiritual unity of people via culture. Such attitude was suggested by N.K. Roerich – the mutual respect and the drawing closer to each other via culture. The Blossom of culture will create and keep Future of the Planet. That is why there are becoming more and more followers of Roerich ideas.
In 2011 the capital of Estonia, Tallinn is declared the cultural capital of the European Union. Coincidence of such event with the centenary of P.F. Belikov is symbolical.
