Yasnaya Polyana

Getting there & away

The easiest way to get to Yasnaya Polyana is on the express train from Moscow's Kursky vokzal (R180, three hours, departs 9am, returns 4.36pm). While waiting for the shuttle bus to the museum, you can amuse yourself by perusing the exhibit that shows the railway as it was during Leo Tolstoy's time.

Otherwise, you can take the elektrichka to Tula (R130, three hours), then take bus 261 to Yasnaya Polyana (R10, 20 minutes).

If you're driving from Moscow, it's easiest to follow Tula's western bypass all the way to its southern end and then turn back north towards Tula.
