Moscow

Pushkin memorial flat

  Ul. Arbat 53      (+7) 499 241 92 95     more than a year ago
Given Pushkin's unfortunate demise in a duel fighting for his wife's honour, it seems fitting that the house where he spent his honeymoon is now a memorial museum. Moving into the Arbat street house at the beginning of February, he even held his stag night here. In a bid to engender some of the atmosphere of the time, the rooms are filled with portraits of his contemporaries and letters although not a lot of Pushkin's belongings remain in situ apart from his writing desk. The desk with his ink stand with a negro boy standing between two gold cotton bails is the star feature. English texts are provided to give a little extra clarity.
