Great Russian writer Vladimir Nabokov was born in this house in 1899. The house, described in all the details in his autobiography books The Other Shores and Speak, Memory remained Nabokov’s the one and only home in the world. And we can understand it literally — Nabokov and his family never owned any house after their departure from St. Petersburg in November 1917. And although over the years much in the house was lost it still retains the look and the atmosphere of the unique home where the writer grew up and which appears not only in the autobiography but in other Nabokov’s works. Today museum exhibits a significant memorial collection and a large research library which is always opened to visitors.
*Entrance to Vladimir Nabokov museum is free.
