8 Summer House of Joseph Stalin

Summer House of Joseph Stalin

Posted on July 26, 2013 by team


This is one of the eighteen summer houses of Joseph Stalin. It is situated five kilometres from Sochi, on the territory of a sanatorium “Zenenaya Roscha” (“Green Grove”). Let’s see have an excursion to the house right now.

The house and the interior have been preserved absolutely untouched, officially this house is a museum today but in fact it is a hotel complex.

The road leading to the house is too narrow for two cars.

The whole complex is surrounded by trees – palms, leaf-bearing trees and cedars. The summer house was built on top of the ridge, this place has a unique microclimate thanks to mixture of several air streams.

The figure is made from wax.

Strict straight lines – typical style of the Stalinist era.

There is a restaurant on the terriory of the sanatorium named after J. Stalin. All the dishes served there are made from home food.

Central entrance to the house.

Here the leader used to play chess.

Precious woods were used for the interior. No rare pictures, no posh details, strictness and shades – favourite furnishing of Stalin.

    You don’t have to like this guy (Stalin) to recognize that he was a genius, an evil genius perhaps, but a genius. He dragged the Soviet Union into the twentieth century and made it a world power.
    The Soviet Union is the only nation after WW II to have achieved ALL of it’s strategic goals. Complete control of Eastern and Northern Europe, domination of Germany, a major force to be reckoned with. All in about thirty years!

      Right. But why worship? All the museums, statues and such. Same with Lenin. I don’t get Russian affection towards its villains.

    I would have thought billiards would have been considered a game of the bourgeois. But that would never stop a hypocritical communist eh?

    Love the house and grounds.

  4. Josh Jeeves says:

    It’s not “Stalin’s house”, it’s an official state-owned residence which was used by a plenty of USSR officials.
    Stalin visited it several times, however.

  5. Ded Pihto says:

    Why call him a *leader* all the time? Are you still feel like he is your leader? He is the war criminal and mass murderer, and should be remembered as such.

    They must suffer from Stockholm syndrome, explains why they feel nostalgic towards the emptiness of those times.
