Classic Russia

Though it is now part of the Ukraine, the Crimea used to be part of Russia. This palace was never lived in, but rather given over to the Literary Society. The interior is... read more

This place is very special but not everybody is able to recognize its value. I had the luxury of taking a private tour in the garden with a worker of the museum, who explained very well the nuances and the importance of every item and every room. I'm related to the people who made the exhibitions and I know they... More

It is the best place for those who are interested in russian literature. Russian here means more written in russian language. We really admired our guides

The price of admission is a bit high for the few statues that are actually there. There was a photo exhibition that was included in the price, but again it seemed underwhelming.

Ridiculous collection of random objects intended to symbolize a literary epoch. The rationale for such a sad attempt is never clear. You can see a similarly pointless exhibit in Moscow.

I wasn't in the museum of the literature, but I saw the sculpture garden and it is amazing. I highly recommended visit it in the middle of your stay – you will know many of sculptures but not all of them, so you will have time to visit these, that you like. Entrance fee is really low.
