Guided Tour “Steps into Nature”


August has just begun, but the first leaves with autumn colours have already appeared on spindles and bird cherry trees. In the forest, it smells of ugly milk-caps and pepper-mushrooms. There was a time when the beautiful and diverse nature of Yasnaya Polyana inspired Leo Tolstoy. Now we offer you the chance to get to know better the places he admired and their rich history.

We invite everybody who is interested to attend our new guided tour, “Steps into Nature.” This walking tour will follow not only well-known parts of the estate, but will also bring you to its most secluded places. In these places, visitors will be able to get in touch with Yasnaya Polyana’s natural beauty and learn a little more about it. 

A Walk at Yasnaya Polyana with Google
June 19, 2015

As part of the Year of literature, Yasnaya Polyana became one of the literary museums that joined the Google Cultural Institute. For the Literary Russia project, objects from the Tolstoy House collection were digitized and a virtual tour of the estate was designed. Now you can take a walk at the Yasnaya Polyana estate thanks to Google street views. The panoramic views and photos are available here >>> (text information is only in Russian).
