Alexander Pushkin Museum-Apartment

This apartment is located on the ground floor of a building on the Moika Embankment. Alexander Pushkin and his family lived in the eleven-room flat from September 1836. In 1837, Alexander Pushkin, infuriated by the rumors of an affair between his wife Natalia and baron Georges of Antes, challenged him to a duel. On January 27, the two men fought and the poet was shot in the stomach. He died from the wound two days later at age 38 in the apartment. Since 1927, the museum, thanks to documents and accounts, is set up just like it was at the time of Pushkin. One can see object that belonged to him as well as archive documents. A part of the exhibition is dedicated to the duel and to the consequences of the loss of the greatest Russian poet.
