The whole place has got an interesting air of being made by hobby-historians. The Museum of Communism is in a small place and looks a little chaotic at first sight, nothing like the House of Terror from Budapest. Still, it is a good mememnto of many decades of Communist dictatorship and you can see many touching things around.

Pictures of demonstrators in front of Russian tanks, roomes filled with objects that bring you 40 years back in time, an entire interrogation office and many other things give a taste of what Communism was like.

I liked the propaganda posters on the walls with the slogans about the greatness of the regime. And the Lenin statue with the Soviet flag!Reply
