Gori Municipality, Georgia - Polarsteps

Gori is Stalin's birth place and it seems they are quite proud of their "son". Even if they acknowledge there was a negative side to the Soviet regime and they have a small room in the basement now to give it some attention. The museum looks more of a glorification of the man. The building is quite impressive itself and you follow the red carpet along a lot of Stalin pictures, carpets and other paraphernalia which show his achievements. It's impressive and leaves me we double feelings. After we visit Uplistsikhe, an abandoned rock-hewn town, which once have played an important role in Georgian history. The place was founded in the late Bronze Age, around 1000 BC.
