    In 2019 Noura-Juku became a foundation!
    In Greek mythology, mankind was always inspired by
    muses, the goddesses of literature and arts. The lyre
    is the symbol of the musical sense of these goddesses
    and emphasizes Noura-Juku as place for inspiration and
    affinity with nature.
