Kutchino, a small village 100 kms north-east of Perm, was the site of the harshest imaginable Soviet prison (GULAG) camp during the long period of communist ruling: "PERM-36". The 'reformatory' camp was build under Joseph Stalin in 1946 initially functioned as a timber production camp. Nowadays, the camp the only one of its kind that remained in Russia - other camps were carefully destroyed with the fall of the communist regime. The site and the facilities of the camp are now occupied by the Museum of the history of political repression "Perm-36", which functions as a vivid reminder of communist terror. All unique buildings at the camp (living huts, cells, the punishment cell, the inner-camp prison and the remains of the fences) were either preserved or have been restored.
