During the construction of this transformer station in 1975 workers found
mortal remains of people who were shot here in 1937 and 1938.


The mortal remains were partly loaded in a big wooden basket and afterwards dozed
into the swamp by bulldozers. The newly formed hill is now grown over with little birch trees.
Another part of the discovered remains were buried in a mass grave on the
municipal cemetery.
Meanwhile a memorial to the honor of the victims of political repression
was erected in this place

In this house, on the second floor, lived the exiled advocate and artist
Aleksander Ivanovich Darwin


A plate with the inscription NKVD was hammered up on the wall of the
Monastery of the Transfiguration of the Savior.
The plate was only discovered nowadays during restoration work on the monastery.

It turned out, however, that it was just a common geodetic survey point: in the 1930s
the Agency of geodetic survey and cartography was part of the NKVD organization.


And in this house the philosopher Gustav Gustavovich Spet
passed the time of his exile.
