Bearing the name of the great Russian write are libraries, a sanatorium (formerly "Yauzlar", built on he initiative and with the help of Chekhov), school-gimnazium #5, several monuments have been created in the writer`s honour, and a number of commemorative plaques have been affixed to the buildings where he lived in different years (the former "Omyur" Villa, "Mariino" Hotel and others).

Chekhov visited Yalta for the first time in 1888. Ten years later his illness made him choose the town as a place of abode. He built in Autka a house (now the House-Museum, 112, Kirov-Str.) and settled here for ever.
