  • 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.
