  • Description

    In the vast land of Siberia, at the foot-hills of Sayan on Shush River stands a village which is well known to the people. Vladimir Flyich Lenin was sent here into exile by the Czarist government. Soon his wife joined him here. Thoughts and ideas that were born here were destined to be the property of people throughout the world. The day was not ling enough for work, it was continued far into the night. Sometimes uncalled guests - the gendarmes - disturbed Lenin. When resting, Lenin liked to walk along the Shush River. He went hunting and gathered mushrooms in the nearby woods. He wrote about the Shushenkoye of those years: "The village is large, there are several rather dirty and dusty streets..." the Shushenskoye of today differs greatly from the village where Lenin lived in exile. Soon it will be transformed still more - the largest in the world Sayano-Shushenskaya Hydro Electric Station will be built here.
