Description of the House Museum of Maksim Gorky

Maksim Gorky  House Museum of Maksim Gorky

House Museum of Maksim Gorky is a former residence of famous Russian writer Gorky. He lived in this residence between 1902 and 1904. Born Aleksey Maksimovich Peshkov, he took a new pseudo name of Gorky or "bitter" in Russian as a reference to life of proletariat of the time. Much of his books are devoted to hardship of common people. This obviously seat well with the revolutionaries that eventually overthrew monarchical rule in 1917. In the Soviet period Nizhny Novgorod was renamed Gorky, but after fall of Soviet Union the city got its original name. Gorky nevertheless is considered one of the greatest social and political writers of his time.
