Melihovo, the estate of Chechov
Are you interested in the Russian literature? Then probably the name of Anton Chekhov rings the bells.
Melichovo, the estate of Anton Chechov
Anton Chechov was a Russian short-story writer, playwright and physician, considered to be one of the greatest short-story writers in the history of world literature. His famous plays include The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard.
During your Moscow tours you can see some of Chehov's houses in Moscow, but we highly recommend you to visit his beautiful country estate. Melihovo is about forty miles south of Moscow, it'll take you about 1,5 hours by car to get there.
Chechov was not only a great writer but also a doctor. He donated his medical services to local peasants in 25 villages, built schools, a fire station and a clinic.
After the tour of the museum we can take you to a picturesque monastery Davidova pustynj (about 10 min by car). Not far from here is a holy-water spring Talezh where you can take a cold bath and raise your spirit.
