History of Russia in the 20th century is full of curious features, cruel milestones, and remarkable events, some of which never happened anywhere else in the world.

The Soviet forced-labor camp system of Stalin Era known as the Gulag is notorious for its victims. A lot of convicts, from petty criminals to political prisoners, suffered there. One of such camps was located near the village of Kuchino, 120 km northeast of the city of Perm. It's mostly known as The Museum of the History of Political Repression Perm-36.

In this museum you'll get to know the realities of prisoners' life of that historical period and learn more about the history of the USSR. The atmosphere in Perm-36 is so unique! Most tourists, who have special interest in Soviet political repressions, admit that the spirit of labor camps there is much more remarkable than even at Solovki prison camp. 

What's also interesting is that lately there has been a big hype about the museum. It is preparing to become a World Heritage Site, recognized by the UNESCO. But the local authorities don't provide enough financial support to the camp. Vladimir Putin himself demanded to save the museum, but the problems didn't stop... Do you want to know the continuation of the story? Come visit Perm-36!
