The house in Taganrog that belongs to Chekhov’s family will be turned into a museum.
After restoration and repair the building, in which the family lived from 1874 to 1876, will become a part of the Taganrog State Literature, History and Architecture Memorial Estate. It was here where Antosha Chekhonte as a high school boy wrote his short first stories and sent them to his brothers in Moscow to get them published in editions of the capital city. Interior and atmosphere of the Chekhovs’ family will be recreated in the rooms, and visitors will be able to see family relics.
