Yasnaya Polyana Museum-Estate of Leo Tolstoy, Tula
(4.3/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • Museum-Manor is located near Tula, in 16 km-you can even take a taxi that would drive. The beautiful park area. Were at Yasnaya Polyana in the winter, but I think that this place is beautiful in any season. In the Manor were without a guide, thank you very much Museum attendants are told. Nice to meet people passionate and knowledgeable about their business, real professionals. In parkland signposted, so it was easy to find the way to the grave, located in a fertile and peaceful area. Amazed that the Homestead is a lot of cats-shared with them sandwiches:)

  • country house in the Woods in the snow, full of history, not for me, then for connoisseurs under the snow and everything much more magical. In the House many original books and everything seems to be in the time of Tolstoy but for us the marches we even leopards and we do not visit country is least thing.
