Vorkuta builds GULAG for tourists

One of the Stalin's GULAGs - a Soviet forced labour camp - will be rebuilt as a tourist resort in Vorkuta. The project is totally based on the archive data. The camp will be an authentic reproduction of the GULAG, including barraks, plank beds and watch-towers, surreounded by barbed wire and patrolled by soldiers and dogs. According to the mayor of Vorkuta, it will be a hotel for extreme lovers. There they should eat turnip gruel and sleep in wooden barracks. Some voluntary labour will be also offered to the guests.
      The local government plans to set the price at about $150-200 per person per night. Special tours will be organized as well through former Stalin's GULAGs. As a responce to critics saying, this project is an attempt to make money on people's grief, the mayor is planning to built a monument to the victims of the regime.
