Chekhov House & Museum, Yalta

(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.

  • Really liked you and feel throughout the presentation and their friends who have visited the country. The guide was interesting and informative. Thank you! Lovely garden, want to return here again, that would be a dip in that era.

  • Very much remembered for the remarkable garden around the House, created by Chekhov-in addition to knowledge of the history of literature (in connection with Chekhov) and Russian history (in connection with the history of the museum itself) brings new knowledge on botany. This kind of contact with the writer's life and allows you to experience the breadth and depth of his interests to do so, and memorial museums.
