A poet's birthday

The house on 36 Liteyny prospect is forever linked to the name of one of the most famous Russian poets. For 20 years Nikolay Nekrasov had lived in this house, here were housed the editorials of two progressive and popular magazines : "Sovremennik" (The Contemporary) and "Otechestvennye Zapiski" (Notes of the Fatherland). A Russian journalist said, "the history of these rooms has a history of literary relations of a whole era, the history of the Russian press". The museum apartment has maintained genuine environment and presents the personal belongings of the poet.

On December 10, on poet's birthday, the entrance to the Memorial Museum apartment of Nikolay Nekrasov is free. Excursions in Russian will take place at 15:00, 16:00 and 17:00.

If you are in Saint Petersburg on other dates, do not get upset: the museum is included in St.Petersburg Card.
