Yasnaya Polyana, Tula

(4.2/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Yasnaya Polyana, home of the famed Russian writer, sits preserved just as it was when Tolstoy died in 1910. The writer was born on this property and buried in the forest behind the estate, although he spent a portion of his life in much more lavish Moscow quarters. Visit the memorial museum to see where the writer crafted the novel "War and Peace." Browse the displays of Tolstoy's personal items, as well as his immense library of over 22,000 books. If time permits, take the long walk into the forest to find Tolstoy's grave. Put Yasnaya Polyana and other Tula attractions into our Tula holiday planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Want to see the past come to Yasnaya Polyana! Read "morning landowner" L.n. Tolstoy before visiting the Museum. And see how people lived in Russia from the estates. Understand and feel the difference between textbooks the history of the USSR and sorosovskimi publications 1990-ies and present history!

  • Visited the mansion in March 2017 year came a little later, so 3:00 pm last tour did not have time to (is 2:00), so walked around on its own territory and inspected the buildings from the outside. You can see the love here for all looked after, atmosphere disposes to leisurely stroll and have a frank conversation. At Yasnaya Polyana is very good! The impression of a ruined one moment, but in my opinion important for those travelling by car. To return to the car parking is open, stole the Tablet and. .. one of 6 Tula gingerbread. All done so that the disappearance was noticed as late as possible. There are no words ... If steal even gingerbread)))) Be careful and let your impressions of Yasnaya Polyana nothing spoil!

  • Have long wanted to go to Yasnaya Polyana, visit the birthplace of the great writer, absorb the spirit of the time, take a walk and enjoy the atmosphere. This year long February holidays just that contributed. The reviews already knew in advance that it is better to go to YAP in District 10 am to guaranteed without much waiting to get on the tour (400rub \ adult), the road from Tula is not tedious, drove from the Center for 20 minutes. Parking at the park free. We caught a wonderful guide, which quoted Leo Tolstoy and with verve and trembling told about him, his life and family (sometimes even "evolved" on a tear). We were very lucky with the weather-bright sunshine and blue sky, just a beauty! turned out great pictures with snow-covered pines and icicles. Dressed warmly in advance to make it easy to walk and needs no escape bask-even though the temperature was only 0 \-1 g. After excursions and walks perfectly dined in Cafe Preshpekt ". As a result, the ride remained are very happy.
