The program is built in such a way that, in addition to Moscow mansions and streets associated with the name of the great Russian writer Leo Tolstoy and buildings connected, for example, with his great novel "War and Peace", you will be able to visit the famous Yasnaya Polyana – the Leo Tolstoy house museum in the Tula region ...
A great opportunity to extend your stay in Russia is to continue your literary journey by moving on the high-speed train Sapsan (4 hours) to Saint-Petersburg under our program "Saint-Petersburg of Fyodor Dostoevsky".
The program is preliminary. The organizers reserve the right to replace the excursion blocks with similar ones, without changing main waypoints.
We will visit the charming wooden mansion of Tolstoy in Khamovniki surrounded by an old garden and carved timber fence where it seems that the time has stopped. Inside you will see many interesting details from the everyday life of the writer and his family, such as the bike that Tolstoy learnt to ride when he was almost 70 or an exquisite pair of shoes that he carved for his friend.
Another famous Russian literary destination is Tula, located 120 kilometers south of Moscow. Tula is famous worldwide for The National Leo Tolstoy Museum-Estate in Yasnaya Polyana, where the great Russian writer was born in 1828, lived for about sixty years, wrote many of his books including «War and Peace» and was buried in 1910.
With its authentic buildings, surrounded by picturesque forests, orchards and parks, it is a typical Russian estate, which will give the traveller an insight into the everyday life and traditions of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries
