This small town near Moscow has forever gone down in history of Russian musical culture. For many years lived here Pyotr Tschaikowsky, world-wide known composer.
..."I like our Russian nature more than any other..," wrote Tschakovsky.
...Here, in Klin, the composer created many of his best works: operas "Enchantress and "Jolanta", ballets "Sleeping Beauty" and "Nut-Cracker", the Fifth and the Sixth Symphonies, a number of romances...
...The great musician's library is indicative of the variety of his interest. Here are works by Pushkin, Herzen, Turgenev, books in philosophy, natural science, history in French, German, English, Italian and Czech.
...Tchaikovsky's house in Klin is one of the oldest musical museums of Soviet Union.
...It is daily visited by many people-admirers of the composer's talent from all over the country and various states of the world.
...The staff of the museum keep carefully all Tchaikovsky's things which help to reveal the character of this modest and hardworking man, in whose life the music was the main thing.
...The house in Klin reproduces the atmosphere the composer lived and worked in.
