Bulgakov’s Moscow

Russia’s first research and educational multimedia project dedicated to places where Bulgakov lived or frequented. The project includes a printed map, navigation mobile app and website.


Mikhail Bulgakov room



These window frames, latches, parquet floors and walls remember how in autumn of 1921 the future famous Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov moved in with his wife Tatiana Lappa. Here he spent his first years in Moscow — fussy, hungry, but incredibly fruitful years.
Here he worked on «Diaboliad», «A Country Doctor’s Notebook», «Morfine», «The Fatal Eggs» and, finally, here he wrote, «The White Guard». A sofa, a mirror, a camp bed, two lockers and the collected works of Danilevsky – none of the furniture survived since those times, except, perhaps, a fancy bookshelf decorated with mermaids (or probably two Sphinxes) on both sides and several books. But does it really matter if through these windows we can see the same view Bulgakov saw while writing — the walls of the same house and the court where cats are walking with slinky gait…
