Birthday of famous Russian traveller Miklukho-Maklai

Traditional readings, devoted to the birthday of famous Russian traveller Miklukho-Maklai, open in his birthplace in the Okulovsky district (the Novgorod region, Russia's north-west) on Wednesday. Miklukho-Maklai's patrimony was situated there 150 years ago. The readings will open by the monument to the famous traveller.

The plenary part of the readings will be held at the Okulovsky Museum of Regional Studies, named after Nikolai Miklukho-Maklai. The museum also hosts an exhibition of works by young painters, who tried to depict Miklukho-Maklai's life among the Papuans. Novgorod local lore experts, foreign guests and Maklai's descendants will participate in the readings.

Nikolai Miklukho-Maklai's ethnographic research in South-East Asia, Australia and Oceania made him famous all over the world.
