International Tolstoy Family Reunion


On July 18-22, 2018, the International Tolstoy Family Reunion will take place at Yasnaya Polyana. Over 100 participants from Russia, France, Italy, Sweden, Germany, the Czech Republic, Belgium, Denmark, Great Britain, the USA, and Uruguay will gather at the writer‘s ancestral estate. They are Leo Tolstoy‘s direct descendants, and also representatives of other branches of the Tolstoy family. This reunion is not only of great importance for the preservation of ties within the big family, but also is a vivid example of the significance and value of family traditions in general.

Our Museum‘s Special Online Projects


Over the last year, our museum has prepared eight special online projects dedicated to various aspects of Leo Tolstoy‘s life and work, and the history of his family and of Yasnaya Polyana. We decided to put links to all the projects together for the users to be able to study them in a more convenient way.

Volunteers at Yasnaya Polyana


On July 11, 2018 a group of volunteers from Moscow visited Yasnaya Polyana. 17 people, including seven children, worked together with employees of the estate‘s greenhouse putting the hay brought from the fields under the tent. They placed two tons of hay under the tent.

In addition, the volunteers helped in our fir nurseries; they weeded the area with 400 young fir trees. These trees appeared at Yasnaya Polyana quite recently: they were planted after the bark beetle infestation in 2012-2013.
