I visited the museum a sunny Morning and got a private tour of the museum from one of the old ladies working there. I did not understand her explanations but the visit was well worth the money! Here you can see family photos of the Bulgakovs and other personal belongings owned by the famous writer. Very nice exposition, put together... More

For anybody interested in Kiev and literature the best book is probably 'The White Guard' by the Russian writing doctor Michail Bulgakow (1891 - 1940), living a part of his life in a quite grand house on the town's most attractive street Andriivskyi Uzviz, which goes steep and bending from Kiev's Old Town down to Podil near the Dnjepr.

No 13 Andrieyevskiy Uzviz is famous for its former tenents. Bulhakov family was renting a flat here and young Michail was raised in this house. Not many things survived but some have been added based on his novel "White guard" (the added ones are white). The guides do a great job showing you the place with some twists ;) Also... More

Great satisfaction to visit the house of the Turbins, where Bulgakov lived. Came twice, as on Sunday it was two late. The atmosphere speaks about Bulgakov's domestic environment, less about his works and torments, as if the shadow of totalitarianism still clings to the picture. A must see for all literature lover. There is luckily a leaflet in English, all... More

The house of the Turbins, the House of Bulgakov. It will be interesting for all admirers of Mikhail Bulgakov’s works. You’d better make a tour and not spare money, you will learn a lot of interesting facts from the writer's life. Bulgakov's life and his work were concerned with mysticism. It is interesting to look into his rooms; each of... More

Bulgakov is one of the most famous Russian writers (writing in Russian, but Ukrainian from Kiev), opponent to Staline (who was a big fan), known for "Master and Margerita", "Dog's Heart", "the White Guard"...). The house is very small and visit very short. only for fans
