The Sitka Rose Gallery is still going strong, though Teri Rofkar has moved on to pursue her art of weaving and basketry full-time. You can see her work here . We wish her well.

I never knew there was such a rich Russian history in Alaska. Thanks for putting this on here. Sitka will have to go on my list now as well!

Sitka was my favorite city on my Alaska cruise. The Russian heritage is something we don't see a lot of in America. And the native culture is equally fascinating. I love history so Sitka was a wonderful place to explore, especially the Sitka National Historic Park that commemorates the Battle of Sitka in 1804. The Russians and the Tlingits didn't start out as friendly neighbors. If you ever cruise Alaska, don't miss Sitka.
Sitka was once the most populated city on the Pacific Rim. Drop anchor and explore this village steeped in Russian and native Tlingit culture.
