  • About the life of Anna Akhmatova cannot have an idea until ochutish'sja in the grip of a communal apartment, once owned by the Honourable family. The Guide conducted a wonderful excursion that allows you to penetrate the atmosphere of the life and soul of the poet.

  • Even if you're not a fan of Akhmatova, be sure to visit the Fountain House. You will see the difference between Sheremet'evskim and wing, wing, where Anna Andreevna lived (experienced) a few years of his life. Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of 30-1940s of the 20th century. And be sure to look in the window of the courtyard.
