Chekhov House & Museum, Yalta

(4.6/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Chekhov House & Museum and other Yalta attractions into our Yalta vacation builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Very well organized trip-first you show the 15-minute film, and afterward you go directly to the garden and the House. Tell a very interesting and detailed. The garden is currently underway for repair and improvement, but this is not critical, because all the fun is inside the House. Visit forced back to biography and correspondence writer, allowed a deeper understanding of his life.

  • In childhood many times walked past this place and not realize what's special about it. Back at Yalta and visited all became clear. Incredible history and everyday life of one of favorite writers.

  • In Yalta the writer moved from Moscow, experiencing health problems. It is under the roof of this famous "House with outhouse", were written by many famous works, for example: "three sisters", "Cherry Orchard" and others. In Museum funds collected a lot of personal things writer: letters, manuscripts, notebooks. Inside a recreated at that time, very exciting to see: Office, bedroom, living room.
