  • I didn’t explore inside but saw it from the outside. There are websites saying that entry is free. This is outdated. The entrance fee for foreigners is 450 rubles. It also costs money for Russians.  more »
  • A great Art Nouveau house although in much need of restoration and reinterpretation. A house filled with history, well worth a visit even though it is a bit out of center.  more »

  • 450R for foreigners. For each room they have a paper in several languages to explain something about the room or the life of Gorki. Very interesting house. Worth visiting not just for lovers of literature or architecture.
  • Interesting architecture. Don't miss to visit the attic with an exhibition on the first owner of the house and a beautiful room dedicated to worship.
