Search for it under Lauk's Nest, which is the name it actually seems to have been going by for at least a year or two... it's still there in Alviso region, even if it does not seem the ecosystem functions as it once did (I may be mistaken on this).

I check it periodically and it's been visible on the map, but unreachable ("Location not available") for the last couple of weeks that I'm aware of. I figured it was sold and either closed temporarily or permanently.

In March or April it was no longer possible to go to Svarga.

Svarga is/was an amazing build especially when one considers when it was built.

In January (09) I made a tutorial for Myst-Uru fans that were missing their closed MMO Myst Online: Uru Live MO:UL). Many were claiming SL could not even come close to the graphics found in MO:UL. Many of those people had yet to even spend 8 hours in SL. I used images of Svarga as an example of what SL could look like and the complexity of the eco-system.

Yak misses playing New Age music on the Elven Instruments in the little pavillion on Svargas.
We had some interesting jam sessions, even singing via voice...

Elisha, Svarga and Lauk's Nest were both built by Laukosargas Svarog, but they're two different places. Lauk's Nest was actually her home, and is still there, maintained by Graceful Aeon. I talked with Graceful today, and she said the last time she saw Lauk was last spring. Graceful didn't seem to know anything more about the fate of Svarga.
