Tadeusz Bulharyn (1789–1859), of Polish origin, was an offi cer in the Russian army and the French army, and at the same time one of the best-known writers in Russia during the fi rst half of the 19th century. He was a co-owner and the main editor of the daily Северная пчела [English: The Bee of the North] as well as the editor of a few other periodicals. In 1828 Bulharyn bought the Karłowo [Russian: Карлово] estate near Dorpat [Estonian: Tartu], where he moved with his family four years later. He lived in Livonia for almost 30 years. He described the region in his articles,sharinghis knowledge of the area throughout Russia. Bulharyn was impressed by the quiet and academic ambience of Dorpat. He also liked the town’s geographical location and communication system with Saint Petersburg. He praised the university of Dorpat, which he considered to be a model for other universities in the Russian Empire; Estonians and Latvians, whose customs were little known among Russian readers, also absorbed his attention. Bulharyn contributed to the cultural development of Livonia. He owned one of the biggest libraries in Livonia; he informed Livonians about the most important events, invited outstanding artists and urged the authorities to open new cultural institutions.
