Life I.S. Turgenev from the late 1840s flowed between Russia and France.

A wonderful creative atmosphere filled with poetry, music, and art has developed in the Bougivali, at the Yarseni villa in Turgenev. Here the writer spent the last days and hours of his life. For the Turgenev Museum in Orel, the Yasen Villa, which currently houses the Turgenev Museum in Europe, is the most important place that preserves the spirit of the writer.
