The Prison Castle

The Prison Castle is the most mysterious architectural complex of Tobolsk Kremlin. It used to be the strictest Russian prison until 1989, when the Prison Castle stopped its activity; nowadays it is a museum of Siberian exile.

Here you can learn about everyday life of the prisoners of before Revolution and Soviet time. The bravest guests may come to the dungeon where heavy atmosphere still remains.

Visitors also can buy souvenirs in the souvenir shop, take their time in cafeteria “Po krugu” and take pictures. If you are not scared of tales about ghosts, you are welcome to be our guest at hostel “Prisoner”, placed in the center of the Prison Castle.
