Gori is a small city of 48000 inhabitants located in the centre of Georgia, 60km northwest of Tbilisi. Gori is mainly known as the birthplace of Joseph Stalin and hosts the Joseph Stalin Museum which is dedicated to the life of Joseph Stalin. The museum lies on a compound containing a palace built in Stalinist Gothic style (the actual museum, whose construction started in 1951), Stalin's personal railway carriage (armour plated, weighing 83 tons) and the house of Stalin (a small wooden hut, in which Stalin was born in 1878). The Stalin museum contains a number of halls over two floors, with exhibits about the life of Stalin, some of his personal effects and gifts made to him.
