As we’re both fans of Bulgakov’s writings, the museums in Moscow were one of the top things on the agenda when my girlfriend and I visited. Finding it was easy, but getting in is a bit tricky, because the door is always locked and there...More

Delightful small museum run by enthusiastic young people. Limited info in English, but they will be happy to give you what they have. Buy something at the little cafe or gift shop to support this, as they don’t charge admission. Make sure you get directions...More

As a huge fan of Master and Margarita, persuaded my friends to show me this museum. Would recommend it if you love his work! You should also book a tour around Moscow connected to Master and Margarita and his history.

I've been here many times before. Maybe the feet pacing along the Sadovoe koltso come here themselves, independently of my will. Or maybe it's because of a special atmosphere reigning here. First, in fact, the Museum here began a couple of decades before its formal...More

If you've never read Bulgakov, then you're probably not reading this review. On a more serious note, this is the place for true Bulgakov fans to visit. There are actually two museums here. There is one on the ground floor that is run by a...More

I love the graffiti up the hallway into the flat. Life in communal flats under Soviet rule is shown here, though information is provided in Russian for the most part. The rooms are beautifully laid out, both showing how Bulgakov lived whilst also combining aspects...More

The museum seemed to be interesting, but there was unfortunately no information in English. We thus didn't understand anything. The lay-out of the rooms were good. We could afterwards visit Bulgakov's apartment as well, which is quite close to the museum.

Great little musem, totally dedicated to the most famous Bulgakov book. Very interesting stuff, especially original artworks for some of the early editions of the book.

Patriarch Ponds
When you need to hide from the city’s noise and
traffic but don’t want to stroll too far, Patriarch
Ponds is the place to be. Calm water, friendly swans
and ducks with beautiful early 20th century
architecture in the background make this neighborhood
a place you’ll never want to leave. Besides stylish
bars and restaurants scattered in the streets around
the pond, you’ll be able to enjoy museum life from
