There are many houses of the refugees from South Ossetia before entering the Gori city.

That large country is tyrannical, greedy and feroucious. The small country is robbed of even a few things. Gori is a city in eastern Georgia, which serves as the regional capital of Shida Kartli. The name is from Georgian gora, that is, “heap”, or “hill”. It has a population of 49,500.

Gori was an important military stronghold in the middle Ages and maintains a strategic importance due to its location on the principal highway connecting eastern and western parts of Georgia. In the course of its history, Gori has been invaded by the armies of regional powers several times.

The city was occupied by Russian troops during the 2008 Russia–Georgia war. Statue of Stalin stood outside the Town Hall until being removed in 2010 as part of the country’s de-Sovietization process.

Stupidly I entered the Stalin Museum. It is only a record of a cunning dictator. He has a crafty, sly personality, and is often unclean.

I like Gori Town in the quiet country, but the Stalin Museum should change it into a folklore museum.
