Irkutsk  is a city and the administrative center of Irkutsk Oblast, Russia; one of the largest cities in Siberia. In the early 19th century, many Russian artists, officers, and nobles were sent into exile to Siberia for their part in the Decembrist revolt against Tsar Nicholas I. Irkutsk became the major centre of intellectual and social life for these exiles, and much of the city's cultural heritage comes from them; many of their wooden houses, adorned with ornate, hand-carved decorations, survive today in stark contrast with the standard Soviet apartment blocks that surround them. --- Wikipedia.

* Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860 - 1904) was a Russian short-story writer, playwright and physician, considered to be one of the greatest short-story writers in the history of world literature.
In March 1897 Chekhov had suffered a lung hemorrhage caused by tuberculosis, symptoms of which had become apparent considerably earlier. Chekhov moved to Yalta on the advice of doctors in the 1898. Writer bought a plot of land and build a two-storey house with mezzanine (White cottage). In this house Chekhov wrote the narrative “In the Gully”, the plays “The Three Sisters” and “The Cherry Orchard”, the short stories “The Lady with the Dog», “At Christmas”, “The Bride” and others. In Yalta Chekhov met Bunin, Gorky, Kuprin, Korolenko, Shalyapin, Rachmaninoff. After his death (14 July 1904) his sister preserved the house exactly as it was in Chekhov's time and in 1926 she was appointed director of the Chekhov Museum that was set up there.
