Stalin's Dacha

Get a chance to get deep into the mind of Stalin at his Dacha.
Located 30 minutes from Sochi’s center, Stalin’s Dacha was the summer residence built in 1937 for the leader of the Soviet Union. Towards the end of his life, he became so paranoid that he removed all the carpets from the house, so he could hear footsteps if someone was trying to approach him.
Who knows, maybe he still sits there eavesdropping through the closed doors the secrets of the visitors.
