A trip to Yasnaya Polyana – ancestral estate of Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy.
“Without my Yasnaya Polyana, I can hardly imagine Russia and my attitude towards it.”
Museum-Estate “Yasnaya Polyana” is a memorial and natural reserve. Coming here, you find yourself in that very Tolstoy estate, which Lev Nikolayevich himself and his relatives wrote in their diaries and letters, and which guests of Yasnaya Polyana admired so much.
In Yasnaya Polyana, he was born and lived for almost 60 years. The family estate with its landscapes, the best traditions of the estate life, family legends served Tolstoy as an inexhaustible source of creative power and inspiration and was invariably present in his works. Tolstoy gives a description of his native places in Romanov Russian Landowner, War and Peace, Anna Karenina.
Lev Nikolaevich could boast of his library: there were 22 thousand books in the collection. A study with an ancient table made of Persian walnut with green cloth will tell about the work and life spent in the estate; here the writer wrote all his works; the hall where they dined, rested, argued and played music by family members and guests of the manor. A round table located in the “room under the arches”, a lamp, a sofa, an old toilet with three mirrors, personal belongings and portraits of loved ones — all the objects remained in the places where the writer lived.
