The dachia is interesting, but there is not really much to see. An old desk brought from somewhere else, a map, some photos, an enormous pool table, a dining table, and not much else. Worth it mainly to say "I was there".

Located in the hills above Sochi, the villa is about a 35 minute taxi ride away from the city centre. It will be if some interest to you if, like me, you take some interest in Soviet history. It’s not palatial and is pretty much how it was when the man himself lived there (apparently for about three months every summer). I ended up on a guided tour in Russian, and I only understood about 10% of it but enjoyed it nevertheless. I have been informed that English speaking guides are sometimes available, if that’s important to you. Sochi is a lovely place but seems short on places of historical interest, so the Stalin dacha provides something different.

The visit is an opportunity to experience the echoes and dark shadows of Stalin’s dictatorship and Russian culture. Although the guiding is only in Russian there is enough on the internet to explore this simple housing complex in an intelligent way. The name of the game is Paranoia which lead to various design ideas most of which revolve around camouflage, security and escape routes.

Don’t go there specially because it doesn’t worth it. Very simple place with a very simple view. If you decided to go there, so you must continue to the top of the hill in order to see the great view of Sochi
