A route for admirers of the works of Leo Tolstoy and Anton Chekhov. We will visit the Melikhovo estate and the estate in Yasnaya Polyana. In addition, there will be an opportunity to see little-known churches, which can safely claim to be the most unusual churches in Russia. And in between, take a walk through the cozy streets of Serpukhov and Tula.
Recommendations:
  • It is important when visiting public places to keep a social distance, as well as to use personal protective equipment.
  • It is also worth remembering that when checking into hotels and visiting museums you may need a valid QR code or a negative PCR test for not more than 72 hours.
