The Chekhov House Museum is one of the "must do" things while being in Moscow. It reflects Chekhov's and his relatives' lives in Moscow, which is not always known. it won't take too much time but gives a flavor of Chekhov's live in the city.

Patriarch Ponds
When you need to hide from the city’s noise and
traffic but don’t want to stroll too far, Patriarch
Ponds is the place to be. Calm water, friendly swans
and ducks with beautiful early 20th century
architecture in the background make this neighborhood
a place you’ll never want to leave. Besides stylish
bars and restaurants scattered in the streets around
the pond, you’ll be able to enjoy museum life from
