  • Vitebsk is now forever associated with the name of Marc Chagall as an artist was associated with his native city life and a huge portion of creativity. Mark (or as he was named at birth Moses) Chagall was born not in this House, but the family of Chagall moved here immediately after the birth of his eldest son, as old home destroyed by fire. Before the second world war, Vitebsk was considered a Jewish city, Jewish quarter of Vitebsk places abandoned and mostly rebuilt, but because the House-Museum of Chagall lonely stands surrounded by the private sector and low-rise Soviet buildings-sad. The House-Museum works with 11:00. I advise you to come back to open/close to close, then you niveliruete the risk of running into a rowdy crowd of tourists that will parachute from the bus and led a combat Guide, occupy the tiny rooms of the House-Museum, so Apple no place to fall. We had no luck, so we resorted to aid good Samaritan-employee of the Museum, which opened us free from organized groups of rooms that we have at least something to consider before tourists crowd into a space. But, as compensation for moral harm, we overheard a tour. The Museum runs a nice gift shop. In addition to the House-Museum of advise to go to Marc Chagall Art Center, as well as walk through the former Jewish quarter and look at the new synagogue on Griboedov's Street.
