Yasnaya Polyana Museum-Estate of Leo Tolstoy, Tula

(4.2/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Be Russian and not visit "Yasnaya Polyana" unforgivable! This is our history, which you can see with your own eyes and touch. This spiritual delight, soothe mind and great pride! I was there, where he lived, created great Thick L.n.!

  • Had to visit here in the summer, but in winter for the first time. Beauty. On a clear winter weather Yasnaya Polyana in the greater area of rest and pacification.

  • Tours go, pipeline holidays-every 10 minutes, but their quality is not affected. Our guide was very interesting telling, showing his love of Tolstoy and his creativity. Tomb of course shocked their asceticism. Bad enough that no benefits for children and pensioners. Worth a visit!
