The Anton Chekhov house museum tour with transport

Duration:
3 hours

This tour is the perfect way to get to know one of the world’s most sophisticated writers, Anton Chekhov. You will learn about Chekhov’s life and visit the apartment where Chekhov and his relatives lived, including the study where Chekhov wrote. The museum contains number of Chekhov’s works, photographs and personal items.
Anton Pavlovich Chekhov was a Russian physician, dramatist and author who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short stories in history. His career as a dramatist produced four classics and his best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critics. Chekhov practised as a doctor throughout most of his literary career: “Medicine is my lawful wife”, he once said, “and literature is my mistress.”
Chekhov renounced the theater after the disastrous reception of “The Seagull” in 1896, but the play was revived to acclaim in 1898 by Constantin Stanislavski’s Moscow Art Theater, which subsequently also produced Chekhov’s “Uncle Vanya” and premiered his last two plays, “Three Sisters” and “The Cherry Orchard”.
Chekhov made formal innovations which have influenced the evolution of the modern short story. His originality consists in an early use of the stream-of-consciousness technique, later adopted by James Joyce and other modernists, combined with a disavowal of the moral finality of traditional story structure.

Duration:
3 hours

Take this opportunity to learn more about the Russian writer Lev Tolstoy. During the visit to the museum you will see part of a vast collection of exhibits connected to Tolstoy and his family including books and personal items and learn about his life and work.

Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy is a giant of Russian literature, creating such works as “War and Peace” and “Anna Karenina”. Tolstoy primarily wrote novels, short stories, plays and essays. Tolstoy is equally known for his complicated and paradoxical persona and for his extreme moralistic and ascetic views, which he adopted after a moral crisis and spiritual awakening in the 1870s, after which he also became noted as a moral thinker and social reformer.

His literal interpretation of the ethical teachings of Jesus, centering on the Sermon on the Mount, caused him in later life to become a fervent Christian anarchist and anarcho-pacifist. His ideas on nonviolent resistance, expressed in such works as ‘The Kingdom of God Is Within You’, were to have a profound impact on such pivotal twentieth-century figures as Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Take this opportunity to learn more about the Russian writer Lev Tolstoy. During the visit to the museum you will see part of a vast collection of exhibits connected to Tolstoy and his family including books and personal items and learn about his life and work.

Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy is a giant of Russian literature, creating such works as “War and Peace” and “Anna Karenina”. Tolstoy primarily wrote novels, short stories, plays and essays. Tolstoy is equally known for his complicated and paradoxical persona and for his extreme moralistic and ascetic views, which he adopted after a moral crisis and spiritual awakening in the 1870s, after which he also became noted as a moral thinker and social reformer.

His literal interpretation of the ethical teachings of Jesus, centering on the Sermon on the Mount, caused him in later life to become a fervent Christian anarchist and anarcho-pacifist. His ideas on nonviolent resistance, expressed in such works as ‘The Kingdom of God Is Within You’, were to have a profound impact on such pivotal twentieth-century figures as Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr

Tour to Kuskovo with transport

Duration:
4 hours

The Kuskovo Estate often called the Moscow Versailles due to its perfectly preserved French park, is an example of an 18th century, luxurious Moscow summer residence. Its history dates back to 1715, when the village of Kuskovo was bestowed to Boris Sheremetev, an outstanding Russian general. The Sheremetyevs were one of the wealthiest and most powerful families in Russia and the estate was used by several generations of the family. The estate is made up of more than 20 unique architectural monuments – among them there are the main Palace, Grotto, Big Stoned Greenhouse, Italian Cottage and the ancient church. The pearl of Kuskovo is an extensive French park with ponds, lakes, pavilions and Russian and Italian marble sculptures. In 1919 the estate received the official status of a state museum and in 1939 was unified with the Museum of Ceramics, the only one in Russia. Today, the museum possesses one of the largest collections in the world of ceramics and glass from various countries. The collection includes examples of Italian majolica, Venetian, English and Russian glass, Meissen, Sevres and Oriental porcelain.

Tour to Ostankino with transport

Duration:
4 hours

Ostankino park and palace estate, located in the Northern part of Moscow, is a unique example of Russian architecture of the 18th century. Official records of Ostankino date back to the middle of the 16th century. However the estate began to flourish when it became one of the Moscow residences of the Sheremetev family, one of the wealthiest and powerful noble families in Russia during the 18th century. The Sheremetevs owned a quarter of the serfs in the Russian Empire and maintained their fortune by bequeathing the entire estate to the eldest son of each generation, rather than dividing it equally between several heirs. Nikolay Petrovich Sheremetiev is considered to be one of the most educated aristocrats of the 18th century for his great love for art, sciences, literature and especially the theater. That passion drove him to create the magnificent palace in Ostankino. The palace unites under the same roof a library, an art gallery, an armory, scientific rooms and a theater. The theater was opened in 1795 and during a very short time, and thanks to highly professional actors, was on a level equivalent to the Imperial Theater. Praskovia Zhemchugova – the serf star of the theater – later became count Sheremetiev´s wife. In Soviet times, the estate was renovated and opened as a Museum of Serf Art, to commemorate the fact that it was entirely designed and built by serf craftsmen. Nowadays, the theater inside the Ostankino palace is the only Russian and one of the few remaining European theater buildings surviving from the end of the 18th century with its well preserved stage, hall, foyers, make-up rooms and equipment of the upper engine-room.
