A.S.Pushkin Museum Preserve

- Viazemy and Zakharovo estates

- Transfiguration church

- Estate house of Maria Alekseevna Gannibal, A.S. Pushkin’s grandmother

Pushkin’s poetical motherland is considered to be Zakharovo and Viazemy estates near Moscow as he spent his childhood here. At these very places Pushkin saw the beauty of Russian nature, peasants’ ritual dances, heard folk songs, saw the life of rich and province upper class people for the first time. Here he formed his life outlook, began to write his first poems. It is the place of his formation as a national poet. Pushkin came back to these places at the most difficult periods of his life.

Nowadays there is the State historical and literary museum preserve of A.S. Pushkin at the territory of two estates. Coming to these places you can wander the ancient parks paths where the great poet walked as well as breathe this magic air and touch the dumb witnesses of the poet’s childhood – marvellous architecture monuments which are united in a whole XVI—XIX centuries palace and park ensemble: the Transfiguration church, belfry dated the end of XVI century, palace and two wings dated the XVIII century, household outbuildings, parks, ponds of the XVI—XIX centuries. In total there are more than 20 historical and cultural monuments on the territory of Viazemy. These places are related to the key events if the Russian history: the Time of Troubles, Peter’s transformations, 1812 Patriotic War, Civil War and Great patriotic War. Boris Godunov, Lzhedmitriy I, Petr I, Pavel I, Kutuzov, Napoleon, Bagration, N.V. Gogol, L.N. Tolstoy, M. Tsvetaeva, A. Akhmatova and many other world known people came here.

The pond and part of the park lyricized by Pushkin preserved up to now in Zakharovo. In 1999 the estate house of Maria Alekseevna Gannibal, A.S. Pushkin mother’s grandmother was reconstructed. The great poet’s childhood museum is located in it.

Pushkin museum preserve funds store the unique items of XVII—XIX centuries estate culture.

The new museum – Aleksandr Pushkin’s childhood museum has justly occupied its own niche among the other Pushkin museums of the country. Despite its “young age” (only 15 years) it has already acquired its unique view.

The museum is dedicated to the two topics which have not been disclosed before: Pushkin’s childhood, general value of the childhood and Pushkin’s surroundings, invaluable role of the environment that surrounded, educated and brought up the future poet.
