Yasnaya Polyana

   
 
 

The little town of Yasnaya Polyana (Tula region! is only 200 km (125 miles) south of Moscow. It is the site of the museum-estate of the great Russian writer Leo Tolstoy. He was born here, lived here for 60 years, and was buried here. Yasnaya Polyana was the place where Tolstoy wrote War and Peace and Anna Karenina. Tolstoy taught peasant children at a school that he built himself. He published a pedagogical magazine and, at the same time, worked the fields. With a great dealof support from the writer's descendants, the estate of Yasnaya Polyana became a major tourist destination. It is now the site of culture festivals, international writers conferences, and literary seminars on Tolstoy and his work. A special train named Yasnaya Polyana takes visitors from Moscow to this estate.

The appearance of the local train station Kozlova Zaseka was restored to its original state and the station is now also a museum.
