Astapovo in People's Lives

Leo Tolstoy: In a monumental, epiphanic decision to leave home and my wife, and renounce my aristocracy, I fled from my life in the middle of winter and the middle of the night, in 1910. I fell ill aboard a train, and when it stopped in Astapovo, the station master personally took me to his apartment and called in local doctors. However, I died here on November 20th. This tiny town was honored, in a way, to have been a part of my story, and eight years after my death, it changed its name to "Lev Tolstoy" after me.
