THE STALIN WORLD

Grutas Park, located in one of the most beautiful Lithuanian countryside, is considered to be the unique one for the quantity of the sculptures with an ideological content. All memorial Soviet statues were taken from the different places by cranes when Lithuanians got back their independence in 1989.
There are the sculptures of Lenin, a rare Stalin, soldiers, writers, workers and other Soviet heroes. There is an information center-Museum in Grutas Park. Soviet area is reflected in the exposition about ideologised Soviet propaganda. There the authentic documents, photographs, machines and other material are exhibited. The most charming thing is the souvenirs on the Soviet period theme.
Children can find here a small zoo.
