Visit the apartment museum in the heart of Rostov-on-Don to plunge into the world of refined elegance and enjoy the distinctive atmosphere of pre-Revolution Russia. This unique museum offers not just an excursion but a real journey into the past, where every element of the interior and every detail of the household evoke the spirit of the 19th century.

You will enter a different world, where time seems to have stopped. You will have a chance to enjoy tea served in the most delicate Kuznetsov porcelain teaware under the glow of the kerosene lamp, listening to the sounds of shuffling records, the tenor of Enrico Caruso, and the ticking of the antique clock. The porcelain tableware is a work of art, symbolizing the wealth and sophistication of the era.

The tea party at the museum is a ceremony that begins with delicious homemade cupcakes and cookies baked by the hostess of the museum, accompanied with sweet homemade jam and a sip of Madeira. A small talk concerning the everyday lives of people in the 19th century and the fashion, customs, and culture of that time takes place over the cup of aromatic tea.

In the apartment museum, you will find an exhibition reproducing the atmosphere of the hallway, study, bedroom, and dining room of that period. There is no dust or fust — all the items are truly authentic, which makes the visit especially engaging and interactive. Every element of the decor, from mother-of-pearl inlaid furniture sets to authentic pre-revolutionary photographs and vintage lingerie, has its own story to tell.

The collection of items related to the theater and social life deserves special attention. The exhibits include fans, binoculars, and carnets de bal, or special dance cards, which were used to keep track of partners and dances at balls and dance evenings. And the outfits displayed in the bedroom area, from hats to dresses, demonstrate the sophistication and luxury of pre-revolutionary fashion.

The apartment museum offers more than simply a display of art; it’s a chance to travel back in time, experience a different era, and lose yourself in an environment of genuine luxury and cultural splendor. You are welcome to discover the magic, get acquainted with the history and culture of the 19th century, and enjoy a moment of solitude and peace in the bustling rhythm of modern life.
