Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky was born in Votkinsk and spent the first 8 years of his life there, before his parents moved first to Moscow and later to St. Petersburg.

    Very interesting museum! But the photo fees for foreigners are always a rip-off!

    Thanks Michael for promotion on VT this really off the beaten path place (even for us - Russians!). Tchaikovsky's name makes this remote Russian town attractive for tourists and the museum looks very interesting on your page.

    It was interesting to read about Tchaikovsky's accomplishments and see how he lived in those long-ago days! I think I too would like a nice river cruise such as the one you took.

    Fine new tips and photos of Tchaikovsky's birthplace! This is just the sort of place I love to visit. I've seen fine productions of Tchaikovsky's operas Eugene Onegin and Pique Dame in recent years.

    Like in Salzburg they try to use a famous composer to promote their business - but they still seem to have to learn. They should create Tchaikovsky balls etc, (maybe the balls are not a good idea, Thaikovsky was gay.
