Yasnaya Polyana

Yasnaya Polyana
200 kilometres south of Moscow lies a traditional Russian estate of the 19th century, Yasnaya Polyana, the ancestral home of Leo Tolstoy. The very place where the writer was born, lived most of his life, wrote Anna Karenina and the War and Peace, and where is buried. The estate has been preserved to the slightest detail with rooms kept unchanged since his death for more than a century - with books, furniture, paintings and even some of Tolstoy’s clothes.
