As every Soviet schoolkid was once taught, Shushenskoe played host to Lenin for three years of (relatively comfortable) exile. Away from the town museum, there’s not a whole lot to see here other than copious amounts of post-Soviet decay. One odd feature is the sheer number of trees – in places it feels as though the town was built in the middle of a forest without clearing the spot first.
