Russia ends where the Russian language ends

Classical Russian literature is a model for many people. Its role is very difficult to overestimate; it is multifaceted and still not explored completely. The golden age of Russian literature is a real treasure trove of talented prose writers and poets. Merciless to himself and people Gogol, yearnful Lermontov, sad Turgenev, angry Nekrasov, the great rebel Tolstoy, the sorcerer of the language Ostrovsky - their creativity, as well as, works of other Russian authors are filled with love for the fatherland, while the places and events described in the works of Russian classics often had their prototypes in real life. To immerse in the atmosphere of these works, to understand the fragility of the Russian soul and its power, to comprehend the age-old truths and beauty of Russian nature, we invite you to travel to the historical and architectural treasures of our country, so captivatingly described in the works of the great Russian writers and poets!
