Yasnaya Polyana Museum-Estate of Leo Tolstoy, Yasnaya Polyana

4.3
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.

  • Very pleasant atmosphere. Must be selected here for the whole day. The Park is open until 9:00 pm. It is advisable to take with a meal.

  • In principle it was not dull. The territory is big. Feeling that back in the past a bit spoils guests. At the weekend, unfortunately, guests and the truth too much. Museum-House in the Manor. Guides are aggressive, but they can understand, about high mere mortals is not so easy to convey. Parking is found quickly.

  • I have long wanted to visit the Yasnaya Polyana, but never issued in case. And there went with friends to Tula and the next day to come here. And have not regretted! True, some confusion was near the cash register-buy ticket to tour is only a few minutes before its start. Few bizarre Administration's position vis-à-vis visitors-sell tickets and not covered, waiting at the cash desk. Excursion cost 400 rubles, no discounts. Even for children. Thank God, we got lucky with a guide) very pleasant and a lot of knowing, gave us not just dry information and told the story of a relationship by Lev Nikolayevich with other people like that and why happened in his life. 1.5 hour tours with it passed by very quickly, and most importantly, it was very informative and not tiring. Not all guides can spend the trip, believe me. After the tour does not run off to another group and answered all our questions. And it was very nice to just walk on the estate in the shade of the trees. Quiet and umirotvorjonno. Come visit!
