If you ever wanted to leave the modern apartment of the city and immerse yourself in an unhurried atmosphere of a provincial house from the early 20th century. Then the most appropriate way leads to the city of Alexandrov in the Literary Museum of Marina and Anastasii Tsvietáieva .
Here, between the years 1915 to 1917, Marina Tsvetaeva often stayed with her younger sister Anastasia. The exhibitions of the museums are located in the neighborhood of the wooden houses. These are Lebedev’s houses of Tsvietáieva and the dedicated work of famous Russian poets and writers exiled from the Soviet era. The museum has a small branch in the village Lizunovo dedicated to the work of the writer A. infant Musatov.
The exhibition of the house Tsvetaeva is imbued in a poetic atmosphere of the Silver Age, and it is based on metaphor, so it is now considered a museum-metaphor.
Arriving at “Alexander’s Summer”, where Tsvetaeva wrote his second book of prose “smoke, smoke, smoke”. During this period, the poet frequented visits to other writers: Osip Mandelstam, S. Parnok.
In 1982, the halter for the censorship of the Soviet writers began to diminish, and in Aleksandrov was constructed the festival of the poetry of Tsvietáieva. In this wave of freedom of expression in June 1991, the Tsvetaeva Marine Community Foundation initiated the opening of the first museum dedicated to it, and it was then given to the city.
Exhibitions and events
The permanent exhibition, located in about 6 rooms, is a fascinating selection of materials and designs. With stylized look of wall paintings, historical photographs, antique furniture and windows in eloquent costumes to convey the feeling of pre-revolutionary Russian era.
