Olga, our guide in the Bulgakov Museum was one of the best guides I have ever had. Not only because of her great knowledge but also because of her Russian spirit what I have always admired. At the end of her tour full of mysterious...More

The house 'White Guard' is written about. A well organised insight into Bulgakov and his family. Read some of his work first.

I really liked Mikhail Bulgakov's appartment. What I can recommend is signing up for a tour in English as I took one in Russian, as such was only available when I came there and I didn't understand almost anything, which is a pity.

it's more the location than anything else. This is how those early Russian streets would have looked before the vast Soviet-style architecture took hold. The museum is well worth a look but booking is essential as it gets busy.

Charming place for all admirers of Mikhail Bulgakov, Interesting hint - the items belonged to the family are natural, the items which didn't (but still from that epoch) - are painted in white. Possible to buy interesting books about the writer and Kiev of that...More
