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.

  • Anton Chekhov in the House I was few times, last, quite recently, the literary-musical contest-Festival "YALOS" in March 2017. Room small, but prisutstvennyj and meaningful for the writing person. But that is not the case ... The atmosphere of this House makes imbued with respect and inner "classic thrill". Real home furnishings in all senses of the word. Anton Pavlovich year-round receives visitors in his home, in the Park on a favorite bench. I think a lot of sense, because not tell an intelligent person will always find a way to beauty. From the bus stop 10 minutes later Spartak pleasant walk)

  • For those who are interested in Russian culture and history to visit necessarily. Surprise is Sadiq. Many trees have been preserved since the time of Chekhov

  • The Museum is located in the heart of old Yalta, with school-age children! Atmospheric and informative.
