#2 of 7 in Historic Sites in Yalta Municipality
Historic Site Specialty Museum
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.
