Sophia Tolstaya's Birthday

Today, September 4, we celebrate the 170th anniversary of Sophia Andreevna Tolstaya’s birth –Leo Tolstoy’s wife, who did so much to preserve Yasnaya Polyana. Today, visitors to the museum can see personal items that belonged to Sophia in an exhibition in the vaulted room, which once served as the children’s room.  Among the items are her drawings, the book she authored “Skeleton Dolls and Other Stories,” a wooden “skeleton doll”, and her notebook of drawings for her grandchildren.  The selection of items is not accidental – Sophia devoted a major part of her life to her children and grandchildren, who always revered her as their loving mother and tender grandmother.
