I.A. Bunin is one of the greatest writers in Russia, the first Russian winner of the Nobel Prize in literature. A genius who could describe a single moment of life in a way that made any reader feel like it was inside his work. Being devoted to Russia and the monarchy to the end of his life, he, while in exile for 33 years, continued to write his works filled with infinite love for his native land.
140 years after the birth of the writer, a monument to Bunin was erected on the observation platform of the railway station in Yefremov. One may bring flowers here any day and take a commemorative picture. But why here?
The fate of Ivan Alexeyevich is closely connected with this wonderful city Krasivomechye.
The young and talented Ivan Alekseyevich stayed here for the first time on his way to Yasnaya Polyana when he was 17 years old. A year later, Ivan Alekseyevich stayed here with his brother's son-in-law; at the age of 30, he described many local places in the famous story "Antonovka Apples," and after moving from the estate in 1905, he and his family purchased a modest mansion at the address: 47 Turgenev Str.The monument to Bunin may be seen by every resident of Yefremov and passengers of trains heading towards the Krasnodar Territory and back.
