  • Was the Museum twice. First time-read dense woman, just like in theatre)) so much emotion, expression! Fully immerses you in an atmosphere as if you live with it and ran through the pages of life. Showed a lot of interesting things, what one secret room is worth ... I am so inspired by that next time-led friends. Read about a thin woman, the absolute opposite. A memorized text, afraid to stray and depart from the words, no emotion. Biography as of a school textbook. Dry numbers and dates. About the details, I've generally silent. Purely you I got paid-I you otchitala. Gone, absolutely, distressed and osharashennye. Not expect such. So, when visiting, check what Guide.

  • I liked it a lot! I recommend you visit with a guide, without it your visit will be soda and uninteresting. I'm not any fan of the Bulgakov, but I like the classical literature of any country. And if I have the possibility of seeing the House of a famous classical writer, personal items, I always take this possibility to have better idea about the same writer and the culture of the country where I am. What I advise you also. In addition, it is a very important writer in rusa-ucraniana literature and, as I know, her life was a bit mystical. Worth a visit!
