Vladimir Mayakovsky Museum

The Russian Soviet poet Vladimir Mayakovsky was born in 1893 in the family of foresters in the village of Baghdati. From 1902, he studied in Kutaisi Classical Gymnasium. After the death of his father in 1909 whole family moved to Moscow. In 1908, Mayakovsky became a member of the Bolshevik Party. Because of his contacts with Futurists he was expelled from school. He published his first verses in 1912. His works were appreciated by Maxim Gorki and Vladimir Lenin.

Vladimir Mayakovsky was a great reformer of the classical poetry and one of the founders of the Social Realism. He knew the Georgian language very well and traveled to Georgia several times (in 1914, 1924, 1926 and in 1927).

The country was reflected in his verses and poems – “Vladicaucasus – Tbilisi”, “Our Youth”, “Mexico”; “Tamar and Demon”. He used to say that he was in debt “with the Baghdati sky”. His verses and poems are translated into Georgian.

In 1940 Baghdati town was named after Vladimir Mayakovsky and the same year a house-museum dedicated to the poet was opened there. In the museum, one can find memorial items of Mayakovski and his parents, paintings devoted to his life, different kind of documents and editions of his works.
