    It is good to see another page on Gori! I am puzzled by your "Stalin museum" tip and the photo "Stalin statue". The building is not the museum, is it ? It might be the Town Hall. Though, I had understood that the statue had been transfered from in front of the Town Hall to in front of the museum but the tatue I have photographed in front of the museum in 2011 is not the one you had in 2006! Strange!

    I was there in Soviet time. Quite a different Memorial as compared to Braunau where Hitler, the other monster, was born. Nothing else than a small stone on the sidewalk at the birthplace where not even the name is written. Here a quasi-religious temple.

    great! I wonder how Gori is pronounced in Georgian? Is it like 'gore'-y...which seems particularly fitting for Stalin's little town!
