As a big fan of Bulhakov I'm truly dissapointed. We bought tickets without excursion( which was grat idea becouse none of guides speaks English). The guide tried to go with us as quick as she can, so we didn't have time to scan the QR code in every room to hear the English decsription(which sounds interesting). I think that that place has potential, but the organisation is tragedy. If they let people walk on their own, maybe they will find something interesting for them. We didn't have such chance.

Ladies, check your heels. The Andreevsky spusk is cobblestoned. Last time I've bben there was in the eighties, so I'm wrighting this in vain as yje next field doesn't extend in the last millennium. So, I'll lie.

It’s a real house of Bulgakov’s family. It was described in “The White Guard” and now it’s a museum. Really good storytellers leads you through the rooms of this nice house and you feel you’re already not here but not at the beginning of 20 century. You’re somewhere in the middle. Real magic of this place.

If you've read The Master and Margarita, Michael Bulgakov's classic critique of Soviet life and culture, it's impossible not to enjoy the brief but characteristically unique tour of Bulgakov's early life growing up in Kiev. There's an English-speaking tour guide, and ours did a wonderful job of filling in facts about Bulgakov's life. The museum is the actual family home of the Bulgakovs' in Kiev, and the tour admirably covers many unknown details of his life growing up as a doctor in Kiev, as well as the ongoing conflict with Russia, which had a profound impact on his work. The tour (at least our guide) focused on Bulgakov's classic account of the Ukrainian War of Independence in the early days of the Soviet Union in his novel The White Guard. If you're not familiar with this work, you will be by the end of the tour. The guide takes you through the actual rooms in the old family home, and you'll see first-hand Bulgakov's medical desk (also used for his early writing), bedrooms, kitchens, and the rest, all meticulously set to reflect the realities of living in Kiev in the early 20th century. Bulgakov later moved to Moscow. I will not mention his phone conversation with Stalin recounted by our guide, but it will make you laugh even as you'll cry. Excellent, historical guide of a great 20th century writer. Go see it!
