Lermontov House — the Last Refuge of the Poet

In the minds of many residents of Russia Pyatigorsk is associated with the name of the Russian poet Mikhail Lermontov. He visited Pyatigorsk many times in his childhood and died in a duel at Mashuk Mountain. In the city they preserved Lermontov House, where the poet spent the last months of his life. This modest wooden house with plastered walls and a reed roof was built in 1836 by Captain Chilayev. In summer the house was rented. In 1841 Lieutenant Lermontov settled in it.

The authorities bought Lermontov House in 1912 and opened a museum in it. To the 150th anniversary of the poet in 1964 the house was completely restored. Now we see the house as it was at the time when the poet rented it together with his friend and close relative Alexey Stolypin. One can see a travel trunk, a narrow bed, a desk and silver household utensils in the rooms.

In 1973 all Lermontov places in Pyatigorsk were united in State Museum-Reserve of M.Y. Lermontov. So, a whole museum quarter formed around the Lermontov House, which includes the Verzilin’s house. The poet often visited these neighbors, and it was in their house that the quarrel broke out, which ended in a duel. Now the Verzilin’s house exhibits documents, autographs and drawings of the poet. Lermontov’s portraits and illustrations for his works are collected in the former house of Chilayev.
