Leo Tolstoy's home is a few hours south of Moscow. Like Sergiyev Posad, Yasnaya Polyana has been drawing the faithful for over 100 years. It's beautiful, sprawling, very Russian — very literary. The best time to go is Saturday or Sunday, when trains leave at 9 a.m. from Moscow's Kurskiy Train Station and go directly to the estate.
