Alakaevka

 

a village in Kinel’ Raion, Kuibyshev Oblast, RSFSR, 55 km northeast of Kuibyshev.

In the summer of 1889, the Ul’ianov family, having moved to Samara from Simbirsk, bought a small farm near the village. The Ul’ianovs spent their summers at the farm, which was also called Alakaevka. In the autumn of 1893, V. I. Lenin moved to St. Petersburg, the rest of the Ul’ianovs moved to Moscow, and the farm was sold. A museum and the Lenin Library are in Alakaevka.
