Memorial Museum of Anna Akhmatova at Fountain House

Anna Akhmatova Museum at Fountain House (Fontanny Dom) is located in the centre of St. Petersburg, in the Southern wing of the Sheremetev palace, a masterpiece of Russian baroque architecture.

For thirty five years I lived in one of the most splendid Petersburg palacesand rejoiced at the perfect proportions of this building of the 18th century, - Akhmatova recollected.

The museum was opened in 1989 marking the centenary since the poetess birthday, and became the first museum dedicated to those representatives of Akhmatovas generation, who tried to preserve their inner world and personality in spite of the pressures of the totalitarian establishment.
