Summer Residence of Joseph Stalin In Novy Afon

Since 1993 this object eventually came into possession of the Abkhazian authorities (the leaders of the USSR including Gorbachev had liked to come here), but lately it became a place of tourits’ interest.

For $3 you can have a short excursion and VIP stay in the residence for $800-900 per day.

They say that Stalin had 5 summer residences only in Abkhazia. One was in Gagra, for example, another one near Ritsa lake. This one was built in the mid 40s, Stalin lived here for several months and in general came here 5-6 times.

Here he had direct government connection, service staff of 800 persons, secret ways to the sea and the railway and other things. Stalin did not bathe in the sea, they filled a bath with sea water for him. There were three spacious bedrooms in the residence. Why did he need three of them? For conspiracy! He could sleep in one bedroom and put a dummy in another one. And where he slept he could lie on a couch instead of a bed… He suffered from persecution mania.

All rooms but bathroom are decorated with various sorts of wood. No wallpapers, no paint, no grout – neither on the walls nor on the ceilings.

  1. This object needs like immediately a “facelift”. For a price of 800 USD a day you can keep that baby in better conditions.

  2. Whether communism or capitalism, the sociopaths in charge always make sure they have the best stuff for themselves, crap for everyone else.

  3. Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, on and on they say everyone should be equal. Meanwhile they eat the finest foods, live in mansions and exterminate tens of millions of people.

    Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Kim Jong are all having a family reunion in Hades.

    Communism where the psycho leaders live lavish lifestyles while plundering the entire country into oblivion.

    • The difference between that and capitalism is that if you replace that with rich pigs that essentially run the government anyways.
