Learn the story of the life and death of one of Russia's most beloved writers and step into his private world at Pushkin Museum and Memorial Apartment.

The main museum display is spread through multiple rooms of a historic Saint Petersburg stone mansion where Pushkin last resided. See the paintings, engravings, and other authentic artifacts honoring the poet and his contemporaries. The highlight of the exhibit is the carefully restored apartment where Pushkin lived and died after being fatally wounded in a duel. Many items inside of it were Pushkin’s personal possessions.

  • Excursion on a museum-apartment invaded completely. Feel at the moment, relive the alarm and the pain of loss. Excellent guides, though wizards through time immersed in the atmosphere of tragedy. And by visiting the literary cafe on the corner of Nevsky Moika embankment, as if watching the poet gathered to this deadly duel. Here already we go up the stairs on which walked the great poet, his wounded brought and laid him on the couch in his Office. I am very impressed. Definitely recommend
