#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Yalta
Nestled in gardens amidst a host of exotic plants, Chekhov House & Museum contains the original interiors and possessions of Anton Chekhov, a celebrated playwright and author of numerous short stories. The site dates back to 1898, when the writer decided to move here after his father's death. After decorating the modern white mansion and completing its gardens, Chekov wrote numerous prominent works in the house. You can still see his large coat in the cupboard, as well as other personal belongings. Check out the antique furniture and Ericsson telephone that the family used, and admire the rich architectural details. Pay particular attention to the intricately decorated arch above the main door.

    Interesting exposition meets visitors, then 15-minute film and here you already in the garden of Chekhov. A beautiful, well kept place where I want to stay longer. Plant diversity surprises and pleases the eye. Guide interesting talks about the life of Chekhov story into it entwining the garden, House. Inside the House is very cozy, there is something to see. After visiting wanted to again reread the Lady with the dog. Recommend a visit!
