If you've read Bulgakov's works, a visit to the Mikhail Bulgakov Museum is a must. The tour is really a story of Bulgakov's life in Kiev (the tour is given in the house where he lived), mixed with theatrical accoutrements, in the spirit of the...More

it's more the location than anything else. This is how those early Russian streets would have looked before the vast Soviet-style architecture took hold. The museum is well worth a look but booking is essential as it gets busy.

It is nice museum to take a look on youth years of very famous Russian writer. Better to remind "Belaya Gvardiya" "Dni Turbinyh" before the visit. This house and the whole museum have very strong connection to the book. Tee party before or after the...More
