Leo Tolstoy‘s Departure from Yasnaya Polyana in the Press


On the date of Leo Tolstoy‘s death, November 20th, we want to present our new special online project, Leo Tolstoy‘s Departure from Yasnaya Polyana in the Press (link to a Russian-language web site). As a rule, when refering to the writer‘s death, we use the word „departure“ meaning the events that happened from October 28 (November 10) to November 7 (November 20), 1910, after he left Yasnaya Polyana. Those 11 days truly struck the author‘s contemporaries.

The Tolstoy House Will Be Closed for Preparations for the Winter Season

On November 16-27, 2018 preparations for the winter season will be taking place in the Tolstoy House at Yasnaya Polyana. Guided tours of the House will not be offered on those days.

Preparation for the winter and summer seasons is part and parcel of the museum‘s work. We close the Tolstoy House to visitors twice a year in order to be able to carry out maintenance  work in it. It is done to ensure the preservation of the authentic interiors and objects and to make it more convenient for tourists to visit the House. Our task is to preserve the House as it was in Leo Tolstoy‘s lifetime.

Thank you for your understanding!
