Bulgakov, Gogol, Gorky, Mayakovsky, Pushkin, Krylov and Tolstoy (but not the Leo). Maybe you have read some of their books, or just heard the names, or maybe their personalities will be mainly new to you. Our route ties together the points on the city map where these people lived or set their stories. Sometimes their lives interlaced with each other in an intricate way...

Vladimir Mayakovsky – a progressive and provocative poet of the early 20th century; Mayakovskaya metro station was names after him

Mikhail Bulgakov – a contemporary of Mayakovsky, but much less welcomed by Stalin. His main novel “The Master and Margareth” was published more than 40 years after his death.

Ivan Krylov – an author of fables and a real aristocrat of the early 19th century with some funny habits.

Maxim Gorky – a man after whom the park in Moscow is named; a controversial figure of the first half of the 20th century;

Aleksey Tolstoy – a distant relative of Leo Tolstoy, a “red count” who was an active supporter of Stalin’s regime,

Aleksander Pushkin – Russian most beloved poet, a creator of modern Russian language in many ways

Nikolay Gogol – a Pushkin’s contemporary, an author of satirical novellas with a good portion of absurd in them.

The tour starts from Mayakovskaya station.
