  • Visiting Pushkin’s home, now a museum, proved to be one of the highlights of my trip to St Petersburg. The rooms are beautifully maintained and it really does feel like you’re visiting someone’s house...  more »
  • It wasn't easy to find where to buy the ticket... announced at 350 rubles but in fact it is mandatory either a guide or an audio guide (500 rubles). Then we discover that we enter by gillette and our group of 4 should have been cut in 2 ... but finally it's a bit of a mess! In short very difficult to start but then very well, interesting audio guide and good visit!

  • What a wonderful place to learn about Russia’s greatest poet Alexander Pushkin. This museum is located at the poet’s apartment. Visitors can only enter the museum with a tour guide or an audio guide paid for at the entrance. Inside the museum, visitors learn in detail about Pushkin and the last four months of his life and his tragic deaths.
  • I suggest you to come here and see the last place where Alexander Pushkin leaved before his last duel. Especially this place is good in winter, because it will add you feelings of that time. You'll be impressed by huge number of things that were saved till now. And, of course, you'll get something new from the life of the great poet, who made too much, but lived not enough.
