Remembering Leo Tolstoy

­Vladimir Tolstoy – Director, Leo Tolstoy Museum-Estate “Yasnaya Polyana”

This year the world will be commemorating another event – a hundred years since the great Russian writer and philosopher Leo Tolstoy died. The great novel War and Peace is just a small part of the genius’s heritage. Tolstoy was brave enough to question the moral and religious pillars that Tsarist Russia had taken for granted. So what was the man like, besides the Tolstoy we think we know? We ask his great-great-grandson, Vladimir Tolstoy.
