The audio guide is great and the apartment is fascinating if you are a fan of Akhmatova. No one else there, very much off the beaten track, so quite cool.

For people who are interested in Anna Akhmatova, poets during the USSR, and those who want to catch a glimpse into a palace-turned soviet apartment, this is an interesting place to go. There are packets of information in each room in several languages and plenty...More

Two huge red cats who think they own the place are the best part of it, if they bother to notice you. Pay special attention to the furniture and things in the appartment itself - all this is a genuine part of Russian everyday life.
