Candide est un jeune garçon vivant au château du baron de Thunder-ten-tronckh qui se trouve en Westphalien. Il a pour maître Pangloss, philosophe qui enseigne la «métaphysico-théologo-cosmolonigologie», et qui professait, à l'instar de Leibniz, que l'on vit dans le meilleur des mondes possibles. Candide est chassé de ce meilleur des mondes possibles à la suite d'un baiser interdit échangé avec Cunégonde, la fille du Baron. Candide découvre alors le monde, et va de déconvenue en déconvenue sur les chemins d'un long voyage initiatique. Герои повести — Кандид, его подруга Кунигунда и наставник Панглос — колесят по всему обитаемому миру, присутствуя при сражениях Семилетней войны, взятии русскими Азова, Лиссабонском землетрясении, и даже посещают сказочную страну Эльдорадо.
