Karosta prison- would you dare?

Hi there! Again long time has passed since i have posted anything. I have been meaning to. I even have had a draft post ready for a while, but got busy with my final thesis and travelling back home to Estonia.

Talking about my final work… I am researching a new hotel in Latvia. Namely Karosta prison hotel,
which is unique worldwide offering tourists the opportunity to spend a night and get the real soviet time prisoner experience; having no comfort in a cold cell, the guards will be yelling at you and if you misbehave you might be punished with physical exercise or cleaning works. The prison also has a dark history and many people were killed there. Would you be willing to spend a night? If that is too extreme you can also get a few hour tour as a prisoner. They also have some team games there or you can just to sightseeing if everything else is too much for you.

So i am researching the motivation for people to visit such a site. Why would anybody want such a crazy experience? If one of you, my dear readers, would be interested, please also fill in my survey about it. It is anonymous and takes only about five minutes.

It would help me a lot with my graduation. Thank you very much!

If you want more information about the unusual tourist attraction, here are some more links to it: http://www.karosta.lv/en/kac-4/ ; www.karostascietums.lv
Have a look, it is a pretty interesting:)

Now that i have done my advertisement, i will get back to work. And soon i will also post all about my lovely home Estonia and more about Amsterdam as well. I promise!
