A fire at Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s estate and museum in Lyubensk has caused huge damage, destroying thousands of artefacts belonging to the composer. Rimsky-Korsakov died in 1908 in the burned down house which he had purchased as a home for his children. The fire is said to have been started due to “the negligence of builders” who were repairing the roof of the museum.
