Gorki Leninskiye Museum-Preserve: Lenin lived and worked there

Gorki Leninskiye Museum-Preserve in the suburbs is a unique place. It is not only one of the few well-preserved mid-sized manor houses of Russia of the XIX century with a picturesque park and a museum of peasant life, but also the place where the main ideologist of the October Revolution Vladimir Lenin spent the last years of his life. The estate, built in the XVIII century, belonged to different owners, among them was the famous Russian writer Alexander Pisarev, the millionaire Morozova and Moscow governor Rheinbott. But it gained true fame after Lenin settled here in 1921 and died here three years later. In 1949 the estate was turned into a museum-reserve and opened to the public.

Today in the Gorki Leninskiye Museum-Preserve a guide will show you the manor house with authentic furniture of the XVIII-XX centuries and a picturesque collection. The memorial atmosphere has been preserved inside: all things, among which Lenin lived and worked, the kitchen utensils and medicines with which he was treated. The library with forty thousand books of the Ulyanovs family as well as a Rolls-Royce car, bought in the UK in 1922 and converted for the Russian winter roads by workers of the Putilov plant, are also impressive. This is the only Rolls-Royce in the world on a half-track! A giant Lenin Museum is located not far from the estate Gorki Leninskiye. The building was erected in 1987 and faced with marble and red tuf. Inside the stone community there is a museum in the style of the 70s. There are documents, banners, books, icons, photographs as well as records of Lenin's speeches and newsreel footage in the windows. A beautiful park surrounding the estate, a magnificent lime avenue and a four-hundred-year-old elm are completing the impression of the museum. Near the estate is a small museum of peasant life, where one can drink tea from a samovar and have pies from a Russian stove.
