Naberezhnaya Moiki, 12 (12, Moika Embankment).

A. S. Pushkin lived in this house from October 1836 to the day of his death on January 29, 1837. The rooms of the museum contain many of the things that belonged to the poet — his writing-table, desk, inkstand and pen, his portraits painted by famous contemporary artists during Pushkin’s life and after his death. Here, in this flat, the visitor seems to feel the drama of Pushkin’s life, the contradictions between the poet and high society, the persecution of the poet by the tsarist officials and the court ‘mob’ that brought him to his tragic end.
