    Stalin's dacha is one of the buildings of the sanatorium green Grove. And as such there is no Museum, there are several available for inspection of premises with pieces of furniture a small excursion is at the beginning of each hour. Tickets cost 300 rubles, but because nobody but me was, I took a drive by giving the employee for 150 rubles. To view the cinema was opened, which was formerly a separate building, and then embedded in the total perimeter of the complex, and several rooms in the main building. All very modestly and ascetic. 10 minutes later approached people and I joined the tour. It was very interesting to hear about the choice of location for summer cottages and some architectural tricks.

    Rooms have been preserved from the times of Stalin's life. Well appointed cottages, and is currently being reconstructed. Further plans to rent rooms in the hotel as holidaymakers. The place is located on the rose of the winds-right in the courtyard cottages occurs the mixing of mountain and sea air. But it's good to feel only from September-October. In August because of the heat even in the mountains unbearably and you feel nothing but heat. At the cottage a lot of personal belongings of Stalin. During the tour did not assess the personality of Stalin-here just telling how he lived here and why. Highly recommend visiting this place despite your attitude to Stalin

    Dacha is in 1.5 km from the entrance to the sanatorium green Grove (stopping at the same Resort Avenue), it is necessary to go all the time. In summer, the heat must not forget water to take with you. Tours are every hour. Cost of 300 ₽. From the suburban complex time Stalin remained a bit, all the exhibits occupy the 3-4 room. In other areas there are rooms to rent and rooms of sanatorium. Cottage does not have the status of the Museum, which is very strange. Anyone can rent a room, but at the site now runs a global reconstruction. Tour guide and her tour were interesting. Recommend to visit those who are interested in the history.
