ANTON CHEKHOV`S SUMMER HOUSE IN GURZUF
[ ] 20.07.2010, 16:39
 

  On January,1900, Chekhov has got a new dacha in Gurzuf. So he wrote to his natives: "I have bought a plot of the coast with the bathing near he quay and the park in Gurzuf. The whole bay belongs to us now. A boat can stay there. The house isn't quite well, but it is covered by a tile. There are four rooms and large passage. One big mulbry-tree". In the summer of that year Chekhov's mother Eugeniya Yakovlevna, his sister Maria and the brother's Ivan family had a rest here. In July and August the wife of the writer - Olga Knipper was here. Later the younger brother Michail will spend here the summer months, the eldest brother Alexander will visit the dacha.

  In August 1900, Chekhov, searching a creative solitude will spend here some days working on the first act of the drama "Three sisters". Not all of Chekhov's friends knew about the Gurzuf dacha. Only V.Komissargevskaya and I.Bunin visited it during the owner's life. Chekhov had presented the actress his photo with an inscription: "To Vera Fyodorovna Komissargevskaya, August 3, on rough day, when the sea was rustled, from silent Anton Chekhov". In 1900 and April 1901 Bunin was twice in Chekhov's dacha.

  Under the will made by Anton Chekhov on August, the 3, 1901, the Dacha in Gurzuf was given to his wife Olga Knipper, who spent here the summer months except war time. During the civil war the actors of the "Kachalov Group" lived here going on tour on the south of Russia. Later S.Rechter, N.Dorleak, I.Koslovsky, O.Efremov visited this dacha. The family of the well known researchers of the Pushkin creative activity B.Tomashevsky and I.Medvedeva were the neighbours of Olga Knipper. Not far from the Chekhov's dacha the composer Leo Knipper got a small dacha. He was the author of the famous song "Polyushko-pole". Last time O.Knipper came here from Moscow in 1953. After her death the house was support of a House of creative activity of the artists after K.Korovin.
