Description

Fraternal greetings, Comrades!

Get ready to go back a few decades to the �good old� red era of proletarian propaganda and communist conformity. Decadent bourgeois revisionists beware! Don�t think that the glorious revolution has been entirely banished to the history books. Nyet! Baku retains some specific �tinges� of its own specific Soviet past. Become a �pioneer� with us as you discover these strata in cultural, socio-political and architectural features. The experience might be nostalgic for some, a cold war fascination for others, but either way, you can count on a very entertaining tour led by a guide whose performance is full of questions, provocations, and surprises. We walk a special route discovering some of Baku�s Soviet features both archetypal and hidden, starting from what was built as the �Central Committee of Communist Party of Azerbaijan�. There are lots to learn as you pass such brilliantly named buildings as the �Monolith� and end up where the USSR�s Baku rulers were toppled in 1991 � the appropriately dubbed �House of Soviets�.

Expect facts and rumors, legends and fun, with an extraordinary atmosphere guaranteed.
