Lovers of Nabokov won't want to miss the chance to pay their respects at this museum dedicated to the genius himself. In fact the Nabokov Museum occupies the very house where the young Vladimir was born and raised (the family were in fact forced to abandon the mansion during the Russian Revolution of 1917). The opportunity to walk those very same corridors and occupy those same rooms that Nabokov did just a century ago should prove an irresistable draw for literature buffs. As well as penning the masterpiece 'Lolita' in English, Nabokov also published a number of successful novels in Russian, translated Pushkin from the Russian, studied at Cambridge, taught at Harvard and made advances in the field of lepidoptery. In other words he was quite a clever chap!
