In 2019 the exhibition Station Bolshevo: the crossroads of fate, 1939 commemorated a notebook of the poet Marina Tsvetaeva which contains translations she made of 12 poems by Mikhail Lermontov into French whilst in Bolshevo. A second notebook belonging to Sergei Durylin was also featured. This contained chapters from his book In His Own Corner which covered his stay in Bolshevo, also in 1939.[3]
