Gulag Stories Tour



We invite you to visit Gulag Museum and learn about the tragic past of the Soviet people in the times of Great Purges.

What methods did Bolsheviks use to retain the power? Do you know how the notorious inner prison of Lubyanka functioned? Where was the bone-chilling "Shooting House" in Moscow? How many people were affected by Great Purges? During our tour we’ll talk about the tragic past of this country and its citizens and learn  the Russian history through life stories who lived through the turbulent 20th century.

The Gulag Museum exhibition reveals the history of the rise, the development and the decline of the Soviet labour camp system, as well as its political, administrative, and economic role. Our museum guide personal story is closely connected to the history of Great Purges and she'll share with us many other life stories of victims of the Soviet repressive policy.
