Into the footsteps of Joseph Stalin


In the morning I'meet you at the place of your stay in Tbilisi from where your interesting day trip starts.

First destination is young Joseph Stalin's secret printing house in Tbilisi. That is the best place for watching extraordinary underground movements from where started spreading of socialist revolution.
The secret printing house was well kept and the most sophisticated one with its inner schemes and connection systems.
Nowadays, printing house serves as an office of Georgian Communist party and due to the poor conditions needs some restoration works.

After exploring printing house drive towards Gori, where the museum of Joseph Stalin, leader of the Soviet Union, is located.
At the museum you can explore items owned by Stalin, including some of his furniture, documents and photos. Outside of the museum you can find his small wooden hut where he spent his very early years and also his personal train 83 tons carriage.

At last, drive back for Tbilisi full with impressions!

A Recent Review of this tour

My experience with the Back to the USSR Tour was second to none. The guide and driver were both incredibly knowledgeable and kind. I could tell from the first second that the guide was extremely passionate about the tour and her information was amazing from start to finish. She included both the Gori Museum and a hidden gem in Tbilisi that was incredible to say the least. For anyone interested in Soviet-era Georgia or even just sightseeing in general, I highly recommend this tour.
