There are many interesting sights in Feodosia, which are worth telling about, but today I will introduce you to the Museum of Alexander Grin. I have long been going to visit the homeland of the writer, whose works I read from early childhood. Probably, thanks to him, I loved the vast expanses of the sea and exciting travel. But everything in order. The building, which today houses the Museum is not quite difficult to notice. It will immediately attract the attention of this amazing mysterious sailboat. It seems that he sailed, and waiting for you to come on his deck and go to distant countries in search of captain Gray.
Alexander Grin settled in Feodosia in 1924. Here he created and his best novels: “Scarlet sails” and “Running on the waves.” From the roadway of the Museum is separated by massive ship’s chain, and this huge anchor if firmly rooted in the pavement. Tourists like to be photographed near it. And this small house is a literary — memorial Museum of Alexander Grin. Inside is very interesting and exciting. You seem to be transferred to the pages of his wonderful works, traveling to non-existent cities and countries, meet with literary heroes. It turns out that the real name of the writer was not the one we all knew, and Grinevsky. Grin his name was friends, so this nickname he chose for his literary pseudonym. The rooms in the Museum are cozy and small, but everything here is stylized under the ship theme. Everywhere there are marine attributes and miniature models of ships.
After visiting the Museum, you will learn about the childhood of the future writer, about how he had to wander in search of unsuccessful work and often starve. Sasha lived thanks to his literary talent, and in 16 the young man decided to become a sailor and got a sailor on the ship “Platon”, which plied from Odessa to Batum and back.
Visiting the green Museum you will learn a lot about the magical mysterious country, which the writer came up with. The halls of the Museum are converted into real ship cabins, each of which has its own mysterious name. Then there is the Cabin of travel, and the hold of the Frigate, and Klipporna with Rostral.
Near this small house in addition to various flower beds with flowers and fragrant lavender, there are many more things remarkable. Vacationers will always be able to sit on the benches and remember his fascinating novels, to imagine yourself in the place of the young Assol or the beautiful captain Gray. In memory immediately come lines from his works:*One morning in the open sea under the sun will sparkle scarlet sails. The shining mass of the scarlet sails of the white ship will move, cutting the waves, right to you. Quietly will swim this wonderful ship, without shouting and shots; on the shore of a lot of people will gather, wondering.
