Stalin’s Dacha in Sochi is one of the 18 summer houses belonging to Joseph Stalin, famous Russian political leader and dictator of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Here, he spent three months every summer from 1936 to 1953, when he died. The building has two stories with minimalistic interior environment and conspicuous austerity. There are no expensive pictures, pieces of art, and luxurious furniture – this describes the owner of the house as a very ascetic person.
