Vladimir Semyonovich Vysotsky was born on January 25, 1938. Vysotsky's creative life consists of more than 800 songs and poems, 20 roles in the theater and about 30 roles played in the cinema. Vladimir Semyonovich made it clear to people with every line he wrote, with every chord, with every "cry", "thunderclap" that he understood them. He sang about the country, about pressing problems, and about distant dreams. He told his stories in such a way that I wanted to rejoice and at the same time cry from an overabundance of feelings. Each of his songs is a world that he gave to all people.

On this day, you will find the most interesting stories from the poet's life, as well as rare photographs of Vladimir Semenovich.

Vysotsky had a huge number of affairs and relationships throughout his life. However, neither Isa Zhukova, nor his second wife Lyudmila Abramova, nor the young artist Larisa Luzhina, nor the actress Tatiana Ivanenko, nor his last love Oksana Afanasyeva gave the poet as much inspiration and support as Marina Vladi. It is her Vysotsky woke up at night to sing a song he had just written. The famous actress, at his call alone, threw everything to be with him when he got into another accident.
