Understanding Russia – Housing in the USSR and present day
Housing in the USSR and present day Russia (visit of fabulous apartment-museum of V.Nemirovich-Danchenko-co-founder of legendary Moscow Art theatre)-lecture and museum visit. In the memorial apartment of the famous theatre director, playwright, and educator Nemirovich-Danchenko (1858-1943), there are a lot of his personal belongings. Throughout the apartment prevails an atmosphere typical of that incredible era. This was a time when the Moscow Art Theatre and the national theatrical tradition in general were created. It almost feels like the owner has just gone out and is going to return home any minute. Nemirovich-Danchenko’s apartment has only three and a half rooms. The well-preserved furnishings of an old Moscow apartment embody the spirit of the time as well as the the creative energy, talent, commitment and passion that distinguished the owner.
