The Literary Quarter of Yekaterinburg is the official name of the United Museum of Urals Writers. This is a large museum complex, which joins together the names of several writers who lived and worked in the Urals. The decision of its foundation was made in 1980. The museum complex includes D. Mamin-Sibiryak's Literary and Memorial House Museum, P.P. Bazhov House Museum, the “Literary Life of the Urals in the 19th Century” Museum and many others, as well as the Chamber Theatre. The houses of writers from different parts of Yekaterinburg and even the region were transferred to one place within the concept of the museum quarter.
The Literary Quarter of Yekaterinburg is a detailed reconstruction of the eras, when the Urals writers lived, and the conditions which they described. In fact, it is a historical area where you can see the streetlights of Yekaterinburg of the early XIX century, stroll along the cobblestone pavements and look at the facades of old houses.
