Munich (München) is the capital city
of state of Bavaria, in southern Germany. During Tchaikovsky's lifetime the
city was the capital of the independent Kingdom of Bavaria until 1871, when
it was incorporated into the German Empire.
Tchaikovsky visited Munich on two occasions:
- late August/early September 1870 — while travelling from Interlaken to Vienna
during his summer vacation, he visited Munich to spend a day with Prince Aleksey
Golitsyn, who was serving in the city's Russian consulate.
- from 7/19 November–9/21 November 1884 — stopping on his way to Iosif Kotek at Davos. His tour of the city included the National
Museum, "where there are masses of interesting things" .
