Back to USSR: Soviet architecture, abandoned buildings, camp
Karlag is one of 550 prisons in the system of GULAG of Stalin time. Although mostly political aspect of this system is known, it was also quite big and effective enterprise from economic prospective.
Many famous people of former USSR passed through this camp, some of former prisoners stayed to live in Kazakhstan. Like it always happens, many good and evil stories are mixed with each other. All of this we will learn this day.
The agenda is like this but may be changed upon your convenience:

- Lunch in miners' town;
- Spassk memorial to victims of political oppression;
- Karaganda city tour.
