  • Interesting museum if you're a fan of Nabokov, they have in exhibition pictures, first editions of many of his books, magazines and a curious collection of butterflies, one of the hobbies of this great writer. The best part... The museum is free.

  • If you visit Saint Petersburg due cultural interests, this is a place not to miss. The house where writer Vladimir Nabokov was birth and lived. Unluckily not all the building is a museum, but the main rooms. Objects, books, clothes, all related to the autor of "Lolita". The entrance es free. Info and attention in Russian.

  • Surreal experience.. The museum has more artefacts related to his lepidopteristic career though
