What is there to see at the Lado Asatiani House-Museum?

The three-century-old wooden house is located in the small village of Bardnala, surrounded by greenery. When walking through the path cut into the meadow, scaling the four steps of the staircase and then looking around from the balcony, you soon get a sense of how this adored poet wrote the pieces that touched the hearts of so many.

Asatiani loved this place, and that affection is preserved in his poems. Now, his childhood home preserves the story of the poet's short life in the early 20th century, before he succumbed to tuberculosis at the age of 26.

Memorial items related to the poet are preserved in this museum. In particular, photos of his life are displayed on the wall, while his favorite items, handwritten poems, ancient pottery, and family photos are also proudly shown. In the main room, there is a wooden throne carved by Lado's great grandfather, to which he dedicated a poem.

A beautiful view of Imereti can also be enjoyed from the window of this old wooden house. The poet's desk stands by this very window, and one can only wonder who many muses the poet gleaned from this vista.
