You cannot miss one of the first Chekhov places in Taganrog. The visitors of a small museum face a sing "Tea, sugar, coffee and other colonial goods". Pavel Chekhov, the father of the writer, brought his family to that building in 1869, opening a shop on the first floor, where people could buy perfume, sweets, soap, smoked food and even icons. Tea and coffee by weight in the store can be bought in the store even now. The museum exposition is located on the second floor. It is the place where Chekhov’s childhood and early years passed.
