“A remote abode of work and bliss…”
You can visit Bolshoye Boldino any time of year, not necessarily in autumn when Pushkin was here, when maples flash with bright fires and birches turn yellow, when leaves pave the path as then, in 1830…
Nowadays, the culture preserve is a great complex with regularly renewing expositions, huge spiritual potential and vast possibilities of excursion service.
The main exposition of the museum is in the manor house. It's special memorial value is that “the miracle of Boldino autumn” happened there.
All famous Pushkin’s tales, except “The Tale of Tsar Saltan”, were written in Boldino. It is no mere chance that the house of former priest Fialkovsky has been turned into the Museum of Pushkin’s Tales. The village of Lvovka is also a part of the excursion route.
In September 2005, the Museum of Characters of Belkin’s Tales was opened in the former manor house of Lvovka mansion to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the first Boldino autumn.
In June 2009, a new exposition was opened. It is placed in the restored building of parish school built by A.A. Pushkin, the son of the poet.
In 2009, the branch of Pushkin’s museum-preserve started working in Nizhny Novgorod.
