Countess Tolstaya hosted a liberal salon in Saint Petersburg. She married Professor Eduard Junge, a notable ophthalmologist, in 1863. After the professor settled into retirement, the couple bought a large tract of land at the Crimean coast. They later sold parcels of land for villa sites, giving birth to the resort village of Koktebel. The spouses lived separately after 1890.
Junge died in Moscow in 1913 and was buried at the graveyard of the Donskoy Monastery. She left several memoirs concerning her father and Taras Shevchenko, among others. Her reminiscences about Nicholas I of Russia were used by Leo Tolstoy for his novella Hadji Murat.
