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.

  • It is better to visit in moderate weather conditions. Not to hot and not cold. An interesting excursion. To eat next. Parking is not great but there is (50 m from the entrance to the estate). Sightseeing tours around the time that tickets will be ready to tour an hour, maybe more. Can walk this time on Park Manor. But there is nowhere to eat, Café at the entrance does not vschet crowded, dumb and without toilets. Toilet spaces 10 p.

  • The great need to go, they need to be read, they their lives change our paradigm. Carried with the Guide-Lyudmila Mikhailovna. There is the possibility, otvezu, son tjoshhu, nephews, all co-workers, advise friends and enemies. Don't think: go/no go to Tolstoy. Just put in the car the family and make them a gift-Yasnaya Polyana.
