I really liked Mikhail Bulgakov's appartment. What I can recommend is signing up for a tour in English as I took one in Russian, as such was only available when I came there and I didn't understand almost anything, which is a pity.

You might visit here thinking you can walk round at your own pace like many museums. You can't. You will be asked to go on a "tour". If you choose not, you can look around but will be scrutinised by the cheerless staff as you...More

it's more the location than anything else. This is how those early Russian streets would have looked before the vast Soviet-style architecture took hold. The museum is well worth a look but booking is essential as it gets busy.

it is more like visiting theatre! if you do not understand Russian - learn before going or read in English "White Guard" by Bulgakov!

You just need to come into the house and you immerse in different world. The Bulkavov's spirit leads you out from vanity to the place and time of his stunning novel. Definitely recommended.
