Yasnaya Polyana Museum-Estate of Leo Tolstoy, 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 Museum-Estate of Leo Tolstoy and other Tula attractions into our Tula holiday planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Very in Yasnaya Polyana is beautiful! English and French parks paved with yellow-red leafy carpet, and the air drunk and it wants to breathe again and again! Walks bring untold pleasure! Mildly surprise lemons, hanging under the open sky, but they are nothing compared with the care and attention that is surrounded by a nature reserve, not changing with the 1910 g!

  • Held at Yasnaya Polyana for almost a day. Arrived in the morning, got in the box office bookings for excursions. At the appointed time for our group came a girl guide and led us on the estate and in the main house. Told is very interesting. Beauty is in the eye of the Manor can be extraordinary after walking tours in the Park. We also visited the tomb of Leo Tolstoy. How to walk, told all the same girl-guide. Leaving the Manor, had lunch in a small cafe "Prešpekt", and then again went for a walk in the Park. Allowed for the same tickets. We don't want to leave. If I hadn't left home, strolling into the evening. By the way, getting there and back in a taxi. The driver brought us to the station Kozlova Zaseka, that in 4 km from Yasnaya Polyana. There's also interesting and beautiful. Recommend.
