Nadezhda Durova Estate-Museum

Nadezhda Durova Estate-Museum (May 2013)

In 1993 the Nadezhda Durova Estate-Museum was opened. Durova famously disguised herself as a man and enlisted in the Russian army, later participating in the Prussian Campaigns and the Napoleonic War. In her later life she settled in this estate in Yelabuga and began writing memoirs of her life. The museum details the life of this remarkable woman from her childhood in Ukraine and her successful army career to her life in Yelabuga and her literary work, which won the praise of Aleksandr Pushkin no less. In addition, the museum also has displays on the military campaigns in which Durova participated and on 19th-century Yelabuga in general. The museum is run as part of the Yelabuga State Historical, Architectural and Art Museum-Reserve.
