4.6/5 based on 170 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.

  • Were almost in all the museums of Chekhov. Accordingly, visited and this House. Interesting and beautiful place for admirers of Chekhov. Was interested in finding out about the history of his descendants and relatives, the Germans also not touched Museum.

  • I really liked this Museum, rather this residential building of this great writer. You come into the House and feel the smell of history, antiquity, truth. There is nothing stranger, everything is as it was during the life of the writer, and even a shrunken leather shoes from time to time, no one thinks of Chekhov's stretch, improve everything as is, lives and grows old together with the House. This is valuable, such in Crimea a little, all try to embellish. I liked the feed guide of garden history-it is clear that during the lifetime of the Czechs only laid the grounds, and the trees were small, but now it's great. So here's the guide begins with the words of the sad story of Chekhov himself in one of his letters: "laid the grounds, sorry did not see how it will look through 100-150 years" and today we see the dream of Chekhov, embodied in reality.

  • It really is a House-Museum, which has preserved the situation that was in place. Very interesting home planning, with outdoor terraces from each room. And what a garden! Very comfortable place!
