Gardens in Russia

Posted on July 28th, 2011 by Sheila Sim

I am a garden lover and photographer with a particular interest in Russia, and I am planning a trip to Russia in spring/summer 2012 to photograph the country estates of some of the great writers – including Yasnaya Polyana (Tolstoy), Melikhovo (Chekhov), Spasskoye-Lutovinovo (Turgenev) and Pushkin Hills. In advance of my trip I am keen to do as much research as possible about these estates, and I wonder if anyone can point me towards any published articles or books about them, in English or in Russian?
