From "Letters of a Russian traveler" began the modern domestic literature. Alive speaking for the first time found the sound on the pages of Karamzin's works in contrast to the high calm of odes and heroic poems. "Letters" - a mirror in which reflected not only the whole of European civilization of that time, but also the soul of the traveler. Together with his hero Karamzin made a pilgrimage in the footsteps of literary characters, visited many beautiful sites, steeped in memories of living there great people acquainted with contemporary writers, philosophers, scientists. A brilliant portrait of Kant, thoughts on the necessity of a work on Russian history after meeting with Levesque, a sentimental longing for home theater reviews – whimsical alternation of multi-style and multi-genre of letters emphasizes the natural randomness of the change of road experiences, complemented by the inexhaustible knowledge Karamzin.
