"He was an incomparable artist... Yes, yes... namely an incomparable... The artist of life..." (Leo Tolstoy about Anton Chekhov)
 
This tour will introduce you to the life and the works of the famous Russian writer and dramatist Anton Chekhov.

 

The Chekhov House-Museum often called the White Dacha. Anton Chekhov lived here for his last four years until his final illness. He was very fond of gardening and you will see some trees, planted by Chekhov himself in a small garden around the house. In Yalta the famous Russian dramatist wrote his famous plays "Three Sisters" and "A Cherry Orchard" as well as numerous stories. Documents, photos, and the writer's personal belongings are displayed in the museum. To enhance the charming atmosphere of the house a concert of chamber music, lyrical songs and romances of the 19th and 20th centuries will be offered for your enjoyment. A glass of chilled local and "champagne" will be served to you before the concert.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov came in Yalta for the first time in 1888 and 10 years later settled here for constant living. On the former outskirts of Autka he had bought a small lot, where by the project of architector Shapovalov in September 1899, building of the house was completed. Its national and harmonic volumes were conditioned by "modern" style.
Plays: "The cherry garden", "Three sisters", the story "In the gully", and miscellaneous narratives, had been written by Chekhov here. Being guests of the authors Kuprin, Bunin, Gorkiy had been working on their productions, here came Levitan, Shaliapin, Rachmaninoff and other agents of culture. In 1921 Chekhov's house was pronounced as museum and the author's sister Maria Pavlovna Chekhova, who had been living with him constantly, was appointed the Life keeper of the house. She managed to preserve the legacy of A.P. Chehov also in the time of the Fascist occupation.

You can see on Yalta Embankment the Chekhov statue and the statue of a Lady with a Toy Dog, the personage of Chekhov's story of the same name:
