Odessa Museum of Pushkin
Odessa Literary and Memorial Museum A.S Pushkin - a branch of the Odessa Literary Museum
Odessa Museum of Pushkin is located on the former Italian street, in one of the very first hotels of the city - Hotel Charles Sicara "Hotel du Nord". The project of architect Frappoli (as well as many beautiful, historical buildings of Odessa).
It was in this hotel that Alexander Pushkin stopped, as soon as he came to Odessa to serve with Vorontsov and lived here, a little less than a month.
Subsequently, the street was named after the world-famous poet, Odessa Museum of Pushkin - Pushkinskaya Street 13. The museum itself is located in several rooms of the former hotel, the entrance from the courtyard and to the right. And near the house where Alexander Pushkin lived, a monument was erected in honor of the poet, which can not be missed because of its realism, with the monument, surprisingly "lively and warm" photographs are obtained.
The house itself suffered a change, as it was badly damaged during the Second World War, and during the reconstruction it was decided not to restore the front balcony and stables.
A. Pushkin in Odessa
I raped Inzov forcibly, so that he would let me go to Odessa - I left my Moldavia and came to Europe. The restauration and the Italian opera reminded me of the past and, to God, have renewed my soul.
(From a letter to my brother)
Pushkin stayed in the city for a little more than a year, during which he managed to write several chapters of "Eugene Onegin", finish the poem "Gypsies" and "Bakhchisarai Fountain", write more than 30 poems.
It was after the service in Odessa that Alexander Pushkin decided to end his career in public service and became the first professional poet of the empire.
Pushkin received the first fee for his work in Odessa, who knows how the history of the world-famous author would turn if he had not visited the city, which he himself described:
There everything breathes, breathes,
Everything shines in the south and brightens
The variety is lively. (AS Pushkin, "Eugene Onegin")
