  • Nostalgic place for great Russian poet Anna Ahmatova. Great place for fans. There is a rich program of lectures (literature and art) in Russian only.
  • Anna Akhmatova Museum is a very remarkable place. This is one of the few museums while which allowed to sit at the table and ozutit' himself visiting poet, imbued with the atmosphere of the life of the last century. The White Hall of the Museum is the harmonious combination of technological advances and Antiquities. One flick of the wrist, we have an opportunity to get acquainted with the individual events of the life of Anna Andreevna and her loved ones. This is the place you want to visit necessarily.

  • A good small museum-House (8 rooms), where Anna Akhmatova spent more than 20 years of his life. In each room there is a small sheet of description so audioguide is optional. Students-free entrance. The Museum staff when issues arise, all in great detail.
