  • A small museum-Theatre, loading you into the jepohuinachala of the last century. Many interesting facts the writer's biography, exhibits that can be touched, telephones, which can be svjashhatsja with the characters of "the master and Margarita". The Museum has a café. Entrance is free of charge. organized excursions (extra charge). tickets for the next performances are not removed. A separate bow unto the Museum, that support the unique atmosphere and blur the line between reality and mysticism.

  • Wanted to get and finally I negate the girlfriend is a historical place-a terrific impression of 50 apartments! I liked all, immersion in the era of Bulgakov. Now be sure to go here with my daughters, following a trip to Moscow.

  • Recommend to visit in Sunday, when within one tram ride tours around the patriarchal, visit the literary Museum, the secret room and biased. Excellent guides, unique atmosphere, imbued with His hoax. totally unique, "live" approach, leading to the apartment, with a free "paintings" wall-original "illustrations" to the famous novel and "messages" to the author.

  • Interesting place, but no point in going if you don't speak Ukrainian. Nothing in English and not very helpful personnel (trying to find a nice way of saying very rude). We were literally physically pushed around, and when picking up an A4 paper with explanations we got shouted at. Interesting experience, interesting place, but one of the worst museum experiences I've had so far.
  • The place is a bit crowded and there aren't many things to see. There's no point of going there if you don't know Russian
  • Very good theatre. One of the best in Moscow. Performances only in Russian
  • The place is a bit crowded and there aren't many things to see. There's no point of going there if you don't know Russian
  • The Bulgakov Museum is set in his old Moscow apartment where he lived from 1921 until 1924, and where parts of his great novel, The Master and Margarita were set.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive.
