Once you see this museum you will remember it for a long time. Dondi-Yurt Museum is in a Chechen town Urus-Martan and its founder – Adam Satuev nicknamed Dondo. This person and his awesome museum will be the subject of this article.

The first private museum in the Chechen Republic was opened in Urus-Martan couple years ago. Its founder – ex – police colonel and sportsman Adam Satuev – began to collect antiquities in the early 90’s. In his museum he reconstructed everyday life of Chechen aul (mountain village) – houses, towers, terraces. These are not just reconstructed, but built of the stones left of the destroyed ancient towers.

Stones are Dondo’s special love. He gathers them across whole republic. Every stone has its own story.

Some of the stones are older than dinosaurs.
