4.7
#1 of 8 in Museums in Yalta
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.

  • 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.
