Literary Tour Alexander Pushkin

Probably, there is not a single educated person who would not know the name of the Russian writer and poet Alexander Pushkin.

A tour of Pushkin in Moscow is an opportunity to visit places associated with the name of the great poet and pay tribute to his genius, an opportunity to take a fresh look at Moscow mansions and museums, squares and streets, a chance to see in them a reflection of the Golden Age of Russian literature.

This tour can be offered separately or together with 4 days literary post program in Saint-Petersburg "Saint-Petersburg of Fedor Dostoyevsky".

The poet was born into a noble family in Moscow and was homeschooled. Later his parents decided to send him to study at the Emperor’s Lyceum in Tsarskoye Selo. He spent six years there and made true friends. After receiving his diploma and the rank of collegiate secretary, Pushkin joined the Collegium of Foreign Affairs. But the civil service was of little interest to him. Literature became Pushkin’s main pursuit.
