We invite you on a virtual tour of the first in Russia Mikhail Bulgakov Museum, established by the Government of Moscow in the well-known to all fans of the novel "The Master and Margarita", "bad apartment" №50, that on the 6th floor of a building 10 Bolshaya Sadovaya Street.
Apartment frightened locals strange phenomena, and sometimes frank devilry. "Follow me, reader! Who told you that there is no light present, faithful, eternal love? Yes cut off liar his vile language! "
Museum begins not in the apartment on the 6th floor, but much earlier. The staircase is painted and painted with admirers of Bulgakov.
Here and favorite quotes from novels and drawings (of course, the most popular character - a cat Behemoth), and the controversy between the haters and lovers of "The Master and Margarita". Enough and trivial labels that any tourist should leave some attractions.
In time, drawings and inscriptions on the walls of the entrance are changing - old paint flaking. But the most curious figures photographed and hung on the walls in the museum.
In the fall of 1921, coming in hungry and homeless city, the writer and his wife settled here, taking a room in a large communal apartment. Here at night, before moving in the summer of 1924 he wrote his first works in Moscow. The very image of "bad" communal house and "rest" for years to come will be to pursue Bulgakov.
The apartment recreates the atmosphere of the time when one of the rooms most famous novels were written. Furniture borrowed from the apartment Bulgakov Naschokinsky lane.

The apartment turned out to be the point of contact with the three epochs of Russian reality - from the post-Soviet modernity; with the era of "Soviet past" (his way of life, its literature, its tragedy and its lessons); with the era of pre-revolutionary Russia, full citizenship to 26 years was Bulgakov and nostalgia for which he suffered in his books.
One particularly a sense of belonging to history, to the writer's personality, and is very interesting to think about what she could look in the mirror the beloved classic.
