SNK - logoA branch of the Slovak National Library (SNK) in Martin, the Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin Literary Museum was set up in 1979 in Brodzany Mansion, a 17th-century Renaissance chateau whose owners the Friesenhofs were related by marriage to the great Russian Romantic writer. The historical park surrounding the chateau contains busts of prominent Slovak and Russian writers created by leading Slovak artists. Not far from the museum is the Friesenhof family crypt, where Pushkin’s sister-in-law Alexandra Goncharov-Friesenhof is buried.

The museum is devoted to Slovak literature as seen from the point of view of Slovak-Russian literary relations from the Great Moravian period up to early 20th century. The historical section of the exhibition deals with Pushkin’s connections with Brodzany Mansion.
