Solovki, the Island of Tears


A bunch of remote islands, surfacing on the White Sea, only 160 Km from the Arctic Circle: it is the Solovki Archipelago, whose name has sadly become famous as synonymous of “gulag”.

As a matter of fact, this is where, in 1923, the first “special destination lager” was created by the new Soviet authorities.
