Pushkin Museum

  Nab. reky Moiky 12 ,   City Centre-1          (+7) 812 571 35 31     more than a year ago
In his famous adaptation of Horace’s Ode, Pushkin wrote that his soul would continue to live past death. Well, in this museum some other things remain as well: a death mask, a writing desk, a lock of hair and other personal items help revive the man who became an eternal influence in Russian literature. The great author Alexander Pushkin’s last home is an essential site for anyone exploring the literary St. Petersburg – after all, Pushkin himself wrote the founding myth of the city in The Bronze Horseman. Audio-guides are mandatory and honestly quite helpful.
If you understand some Russian, check out the nearby exhibition (housed in the same complex) called "Alexander Pushkin. Life and Creative Workde", devoted to Pushkin’s "literary biography", with relevant pictures, personalities and documents.
