The Yasnaya Polyana Book Award Given to the Israeli Writer Amos Oz

The Tolstoy House Will Be Closed for Preparations for the Winter Season

On November 16-27, 2018 preparations for the winter season will be taking place in the Tolstoy House at Yasnaya Polyana. Guided tours of the House will not be offered on those days.

Preparation for the winter and summer seasons is part and parcel of the museum‘s work. We close the Tolstoy House to visitors twice a year in order to be able to carry out maintenance  work in it. It is done to ensure the preservation of the authentic interiors and objects and to make it more convenient for tourists to visit the House. Our task is to preserve the House as it was in Leo Tolstoy‘s lifetime.

Thank you for your understanding!

“I Cannot Be Silent“


The date of October 10 is known as the World Day Against the Death Penalty. It was established in 2003 on the initiative of the World Coalition against the Death Penalty, whose goal is the abolition of executions and death sentences in all the countries where it remains legal.

The death penalty has been a subject of heated discussions for a long time. In the early 20th century, after the first Russian revolution, this penalty was a very widely applied in the Russian Empire.  In reaction to the carrying out of the sentences, in 1908 Leo Tolstoy wrote his article I Cannot Be Silent, which became a manifesto against the death penalty.
