Derzhavin Estate Museum

Back

This beautiful villa on the banks of Fontanka river once belonged to Gavrila Derzhavin - a prominent Russian poet and statesman of the Classicism age. Being a contemporary of young Alexander Pushkin, Derzhavin was the first who discovered and highly praised his poetic genius.

The place used to host meetings of Russian literary and political elite, and now features glorious restored interiors from the late XVIII and early XIX centuries. The museum collection offers plenty of rare antique books, manuscripts, paintings and much more.
