Users of the travel service will learn how famous writers and poets spent their trips and what works appeared thanks to these trips.

Online magazine Russpass Magcontinued a series of publications on the history of travel in Russia. The new material is dedicated to the travels of Alexander Ostrovsky, Mikhail Lermontov, Anton Chekhov, Alexander Pushkin and Dmitry Mamin-Sibiryak.

Chekhov traveled to Sakhalin to write a book and conduct a population census. The writer lived there for only a few months, and got there for 82 days (now the flight from Moscow lasts nine hours). The trip turned out to be long and difficult, Chekhov himself recalled it: “All the way I was starving like a dog. I even dreamed of buckwheat porridge ”. After the trip, the writer said that his whole life is now “pakhalin”.
