When I visited this place first time, a long time ago, before Sochi had been elected for the Olympics, it already appeared to me as a tourist trap, soviet style. Historically interesting, perhaps historically irrelevant, and it does not take your breath away.

So Stalin was paranoid about security and the whole place is painted green to blend in with the surroundings. Yawn. Pictures of the man all over and a wax figure at his desk.

This Residence shows the history of a dynasty. Rooms and Buildings are not the same as other leaders' architectures. the atmosphere makes you think and flash back to another era. that's the effect of this place.

Let me start from the fact that Stalin's summer residence is a definite must-see for the guests of Sochi and surroundings. Easy to reach, situated in the beautiful place, and - most amazingly - having an immense historical meaning. The best part about the visit...More
