Here in Nikitsky Boulevard, near the New Arbat street is located this house-museum of Nikolai Vasilevitch Gogol, one of the greatest russian writers (1809 - 1852). We were nicely surprised, looking at newly restored mansion, where Gogol spent his last four years of life. In...More

When my relatives, who came abroad, asked me to go to Gogol House Museum I thought that it will be a common house, with old furniture and we shall skip it very fast. When we came we were very surprised to see great, interesting, modern...More

We happened upon the Gogol house close to closing time. The guides spoke little English but were gracious and welcoming. We were able to read information about each room in English and there are audiovisual effects to lend an atmosphere to each space I read...More

Crowds of tourists, both local and international take
in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New
Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt
Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open
to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring
one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds
and turn to the side streets and boulevards where
calmness and affordable food is plentiful.
