Narva Art Gallery

Narva, Estonia

Housed in an 18th-century magazine building in the Old Town area, the Narva Museum's Art Gallery covers a wide range of art, from classic foreign works to recent paintings by students of the Ida-Virumaa Art School. Don't miss the upstairs hall exhibiting rare and exquisite Russian crosses and icons, or the large hall that's home to the museum's pride and joy - a collection of paintings, sculptures and porcelain that once belonged to the wealthy Narva merchant Lavretsov. For a small fee visitors can also create a little bit of art for themselves in the museums clay workshop.

Стало очень мало картин! Со второго этажа убрали половину! всех стоящих картин, открыли странную не понятную некому экспозицию - пока не выключили свет. А в другом зале - психоделика, я раньше думал, что Кузя Зверев был жесть, я ошибся) третий этаж вообще решили закрыть, не долго думая. А на первом этаже сделали аля для дитяк изучение Эстонского языка. И весь этот бардак теперь стоит 3! евро. На вопрос работника, что случилось, куда убрали половину шедевров... Нам сказали ну вот, типа обновление... Странно...в лувре мону лизу то не убрали. Короче, не тратьте деньги, не стоит этот цирк 3 евро. Раньше было на что посмотреть и подешевле. Если уж очень захочется туда пойти, то идите в ночь музеев, тогда бесплатно будет

Easter Aquhorthies Stone Circle

Easter Aquhorthies stone circle, located near Inverurie, is one of the best-preserved examples of a recumbent stone circle, and one of the few that still have their full complement of stones. It consists of a ring of nine stones, eight of which are grey granite and one red jasper. Two more grey granite stones flank a recumbent of red granite flecked with crystals and lines of quartz. The circle is particularly notable for its builders' use of polychromy in the stones, with the reddish ones situated on the SSW side and the grey ones opposite.

The placename Aquhorthies derives from a Scottish Gaelic word meaning 'field of prayer', and may indicate a 'long continuity of sanctity' between the Stone or Bronze Age circle builders and their much later Gaelic successors millennia later. The circle's surroundings were landscaped in the late 19th century, and it sits within a small fenced and walled enclosure. A stone dyke, known as a roundel, was built around the circle some time between 1847 and 1866–7.
