Nestled in gardens amidst a host of exotic plants, Chekhov House & Museum contains the original interiors and possessions of Anton Chekhov, a celebrated playwright and author of numerous short stories. The site dates back to 1898, when the writer decided to move here after his father's death. After decorating the modern white mansion and completing its gardens, Chekov wrote numerous prominent works in the house. You can still see his large coat in the cupboard, as well as other personal belongings. Check out the antique furniture and Ericsson telephone that the family used, and admire the rich architectural details. Pay particular attention to the intricately decorated arch above the main door. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Yalta holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Chekhov House & Museum and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Все прекрасно сохранилось. Экспозиция просто великолепная. Но из за того что пространство небольшое, если группа больше 10 человек уже неуютно и темно. more »Everything is perfectly preserved. The exhibition is simply magnificent. But because the space is small, if a group of more than 10 people is already uncomfortable and dark.
I very much enjoyed the experience, and recommend all lovers of literature and history pay a visit!
The second time I visited and did not disappoint! Beautiful house, beautiful garden. Tickets are cheap, the tour to the tickets is attached for free. Only here I would remove from the tour such situations as "there is another interesting room at the top" or "here is a very beautiful staircase" but you will not get there ... It's insulting...
