Vladimir Vysotsky Alpine Museum

Museum in Elbrus Area

This small but interesting museum, 7km east of Cheget, is named after the Soviet-era singer-songwriter and actor Vladimir Vysotsky, who was a great fan of the Elbrus region. The museum's exhibits aren't exclusively devoted to Vysotsky, however, and include a number of fascinating photographs of Soviet ascents of Elbrus, as well as some sad stuffed animals.
