THE VIKING RURIK RETURNS TO SWEDEN!

One of the history’s most important person is Rurik and he needs to get a worthy placement for his statue. Rurik, the Swede who founded Russia in the 8th century, is perhaps the world’s best-known Viking and has been lost in history.

We want to change that. knyaz Rikard Högberg, then CEO and responsible publisher for Delovoy Peterburg, the largest business newspaper in St. Petersburg that is the Swedish Dagens Industri’s subsidiary in Russia, launched this large statue project in 2001. It became the Rurik statue, made in Karelian granite, 2.7 meters high and weighs 6 tons. The statue is cut out with sculptor firearm and then with chisel.
