Japan-Russia Prison Site of Port Arthur, Dalian

4.2
#2 of 17 in Historic Sites in Dalian
Japan-Russia Prison Site of Port Arthur provides a grim look at the little-known conflict that was endured here, and into the lives of those incarcerated in the prison. Originally built by Russia in 1902, then extended by the Japanese, the prison was eventually capable of harboring up to 2,000 prisoners, and was equipped with 15 workshops, gallows, and wards. Throughout the prison, you'll have the opportunity to view exotic, saddening, and unusual artifacts, from torture chambers and equipment, to steam-powered cars from the 1940s. Though entry to the site is free, you can only explore through a guided tour, and you'll need to arrange this in advance. Tour guides typically don't speak good English, though you can find English explanations on signs around the prison site.
