Meet your activity leader: Grigory
Hello! My name is Grigory! I am Muscovite, I have lived in this marvelous city for my entire life. I study in Moscow State University, but have some spare time to do what I like the most, which is to explore the mysteries of Russian literature. One of my favourite books is the legendary novel written by M. Bulgakov "Master and Margarita". In this way, I am keen on showing foreigners the most interesting places of this masterpiece in my city. Moreover, I really enjoy meeting new people and telling them amusing and sometimes shocking facts and myths about Bulgakov himself or his work.
I also give acting courses in Moscow, because acting and playing different parts is my true passion, so I am glad to share this freedom of feeling with my students.
What to expect
Attentive readers and even literary critics recognised long ago that Moscow in the novel by M.A. Bulgakov "Master and Margarita" is not scenery but an active participant of all the events.
At this excursion you will have an acquaintance with Bulgakov's Moscow. You will see the legendary places described in the novel "Master and Margarita": Margarita's mansion, the Variety show, MASSOLIT and many others. However, the conversation about the novel is simply impossible without the author's mention. Therefore, you will learn about how Mikhail Bulgakov lived until 1928, which is the year in which work on the novel has begun. You will be told about a mysterious girl which was Margarita for the author and what destiny the legendary "Master" Bulgakov had.
You will learn which characters are hidden under the masks of heroes of the novel, and what Moscow and Muscovites used to be like in the second decade of the 20th century.
The excursion around the places of the novel "Master and Margarita" will help you to understand this work which isn't solved up to the end, and to know better its heroes.
