The museum stores a lot of genuine things, which, decades later, have again taken their former places here. The poet’s desk and his favorite Voltaire’s chair, a travel casket and a desk, canes and a smoking pipe, an inkwell — all these and other objects today remind of the life of Alexander Pushkin. In the poet’s wife’s room you can see her portrait, made in 1832 by A.P. Bryullov, as well as her perfume bottle, coral bracelet, purses embroidered with beads and silk, and other memorabilia.
The Pushkin apartment museum is a part of the vast literary heritage of St. Petersburg. A lot of creative people and scientists lived in the city — it was called The cultural capital of Russia. Many great poets influenced the history of St. Petersburg, and today in the city there are many different museums that will introduce us to these people. If you want to know more about the literary heritage of St. Petersburg — we invite you to our special tour.
