Literary Museum of Odessa is huge. It has more than 17 separate exhibit rooms full of everything that has to do with Russian Literature. It takes at least 3 hours just to check all of the museums. The downside is that they do not have...More

As it is a russian litterature museum, it is of course better to have some knowledge of the language but each room has a summary in English. The display is very nice. The small park with the sculptures is very pleasant.

It is the best place for those who are interested in russian literature. Russian here means more written in russian language. We really admired our guides

The price of admission is a bit high for the few statues that are actually there. There was a photo exhibition that was included in the price, but again it seemed underwhelming.

Though it is now part of the Ukraine, the Crimea used to be part of Russia. This palace was never lived in, but rather given over to the Literary Society. The interior is beautiful with exhibits from Russia's literary giants, including Pushkin. We were treated...More
