The great composer Johann Sebastian Bach marked several German cities with his presence, however Leipzig saw the last 27 years of his life. Here, by St. Thomas's cathedral, are buried his remains.
He had time to work as a cantor in two of the cities' churches, St. Nicholas's and St. Thomas's. At the latter he was the conductor of the boys' choir for a long time. Right opposite the cathedral stands Bach's house-museum. Unfortunately, his real house in Leipzig did not survive, and Bach's museum and archive are stored at the house of the Bose family, affluent merchant-citizens. Here one can see the composer's personal belongings, musical instruments and ноты. In the museum's walls are usually held themed events and concerts where his music is performed.
