A large mansion is located in the center of Yalta. Built in a pseudo-Gothic style in 1888. It is the former summer house of Capitolina Ilovaiskaya. Writer Anton Chekhov lived and worked in this house on the ground floor from October 1898 to April 1899.

At present the building hosts the Chekhov and Crimea department of the Crimean Literary and Art Memorial Museum.

Omür in the Crimean Tatar language means "life".
