We pre-booked online as it was about 3€ cheaper. This is an audio tour and you are talked through the tour by a Russian prostitute. When we entered we were promised it would be lots of fun. I don’t know what more I expected, but was a bit disappointed. We saw rooms that the prostitutes use, and were talked through the different types of things prostitutes do sexually. It’s something to do. But if you didn’t go you wouldn’t be missing much.

I don’t know what I thought I was expecting, but it fell short. Perhaps I am not easily impressed or shocked, but I just didn’t feel I saw or learnt anything new. I’
m not sure what they could have done to broaden it, however, so if it’s a subject you feel you don’t know much about then it might be worth it. Otherwise 10 euro was jolly pricey for a short, crowded walk around.

If you've got 7€ to waste , then you could spend it here . Moderately interesting , but probably aimed at voyeurs !
Would be boiling hot in the summer & claustrophobic, so beware

not really the best stop. Sure, if you have the time and want to hear audio from a Russian working girl about what its like working in the red light district, go on in. Displays really are not that great at all, but the film in the beginning is rather entertaining. Some interesting stats and facts and figures, but really had I missed this place, would have been fine.
