Paustovsky House Museum Opens in Tarusa
Writer Konstantin Paustovsky

The Tarusa town in the Kaluga Region is harbouring the house, where the Russian writer Konstantin Paustovsky (1892-1968) spent every summer from 1955 till his death in 1968. This year marks the 120th anniversary since the writer’s birth.

      Paustovsky Memorial Museum has been opened in the house restored after a fire. Paustovsky’s relatives, writers from Moscow and Kaluga, and admirers of Paustovsky’s works gathered together at the museum opening on May 31st.

      The interior of the house brings visitors back to the 1950s-1960s. There are lots of the writer’s personal belongings left, the garden and the arbor, where Paustovsky especially liked to work. It was here, in Tarusa, where he wrote most of his late works.

      The museum is open for visitors on Fridays and Saturdays. It has become a branch of the K.G.Paustovsky Museum in Moscow. Konstantin Paustovsky wrote about Tarusa: “The environs here are fantastic, the places are wonderful... I don’t feel like going back to Moscow from here”. The museum founders aspired to keep the charms of this place and the cordial coziness of his home.
