This was by far the highlight of my trip to the Baltic countries. As someone who's always been fascinated by the USSR, you can't beat this Stalinist wonderland. A Lithuanian man started collecting Soviet relics after the fall of Communism and put them into this park of oddities so that people will never forget the trials and tribulations of the time.

It's so bizarre to wander through the woods and come across 20 foot high Lenins and Stalins while Soviet music pipes through speakers in the trees. This place is an awesome Capitol of Kitsch.

They also have a completely irrelevant and stinky zoo along with Soviet playground equipment.
