In one similarly-named novel of A. Chekhov “ the house” symbolizes that cosy,
long-dead, irreversible, but unforgotten past that is so nice to be remembered. It’s clear that for the narrator that “ the house with the mezzanine” was a living being. He was full of tenderness speaking about it. He calls the house
lovely, naïve and old . He felt that “… the old house seemed to look at( him ) with the windows of the mezzanine for eyes and understands everything.“ Time seemed to have stopped at that house…The whole life had gone and never would return.
Our Dom Mezonin is the same. On a lovely wooden veranda you can see tender colours, lavender bunches and other sweet trifles that imply the details of the past.
On the walls and shelves we placed a series of photos of famous writers, poets, artists, opera singers, whose life somehow or rather linked with Kolomna at different times.
The Old House. The lovely veranda and mezzanine with the windows looking out over the domes and the Kremlin.
