Gamsakhurdia actively participated in the "Georgia Liberation Committee," which was formed in Europe. Due to his nationalist ideology, on many occasions he was subjected to Soviet repression.
One of the leaders of the National Liberation Movement of Georgia and the first president of Georgia in 1991-1992 was Konstantine Gamsakhurdia's son, Zviad.
Gamsakhurdia, in addition to important works and publication, greatly contributed to the development of the art of translation. In particular, he translated Goethe's "The Sorrows of Young Werther," Dante Alighieri's "Divine Comedy," and the poetry of Walt Whitman into Georgian.
The museum was opened in 1987 inside the house where the author was born. The yard surrounding it has been preserved to depict a typical Megrelian environment. Moreover, the museum keeps personal items that belonged to the author, photographs depicting his work and life, as well as works published in different languages.
Today, there is a recreational area around the house museum where you can enjoy free Wi-Fi and perhaps do some work right where one of the most important authors of the Classicism period started out.
The holiday "Konstantineoba" is held each year, on May 15th, on Gamsakhurdia’s birthday to honor his enormous contributions to Georgian literature and public life.
