    Lev Tolstoy

Lev Tolstoy is a Russian urban settlement, the administrative center of the Lev Tolstoy District in the Lipetsk Region.

It has the population of 8 800 people (as of 2005).

The settlement was founded as the railway station Astapovo on the line from Bogoyavlensk to the west. Initially trains ran from Astapov only to Dankov and Lebedyan'. In November, 1890 the line Astapovo Troyekurovo started working. This is when the settlement became a junstion station.

The station got its famous name in connection with a tragic event. The writer Leo Tolstoy died here in the house of the station-master I. I. Ozolin, on November 7 (20), 1910.

In November, 1918 the station and the settlement were renamed into Lev Tolstoy. Leo Tolstoy Museum was opened in Ozolin's House. Since December 1, 1946 it has been a branch of the Moscow State Museum of Leo Tolstoy.

In 1927 the settlement of Lev Tolstoy became a township.
