Kashirin House

This is a memorial house where writer Maxim Gorky spent his green years. His autobiographic novel “My Childhood” sets in there. Being a traditional merchant wooden mansion, the house belonged to the writer’s grandfather Vasily Kashirin; inside it is a typical example of urban housekeeping of the late 19th century – chests of drawers, boxes, attires, bed quilts, samovars, and festive houseware are indispensable attributes of the then low middle-class lifestyle.


Be sure to see

After brushing up your memory of Gorky’s “My Childhood”, you will not fail to notice the bench where Vasily Kashirin whipped his grandchildren; a dye shop where he worked; and a graveside cross – a silent reminder of Tsyganok’s death.
