Marina Tsvetaeva's Memorial Flat

There is a special house in the heart of Moscow, in one of the ancient districts of the city. Hidden in the quite and cozy lane, between low-storeyed buildings, it appears like a little miracle for a stranger, walking down the Moscow streets.

This apartment house is a unique place, that keeps the spirit of old noble time, dreams and reality of a young woman with bitter tears of the postrevolutionary period. The name of this women is Marina Tsvetaeva and for nearly a century ago she, full of joy and inspiration, rented an apartment number 3 in this 3-storeyed villa, where she spent 8 years from 194 to 1922.

This building was built in 1862 at Borisoglebsky Lane, named after the Church of Saints Boris and Gleb. That is how it looked in 70-80s, before the restoration.



Marina Tsvetaeva spent in this house a big and important period of her life. It was a place of inspiration as well as a realm of tragic feelings. While living here with her husband Sergey Efron and their daughter Ariadna, she grew intellectually and emotionally by writing remarkable verses. The artistic world of the poet was formed in this house. Inside the museum, which looks like an apartment, one can feel the atmosphere of past time, full of joy, love and welfare. It seems like an old friend is still waiting for you there. You hear the sounds of piano, children's voices and loud laughter.

Every room has its own face and every thing, every secluded corner breathes with culture and art. From a hall one can walk into a dining room with nice interior and a window-lantern ceiling. ...
