Traveling about 30 kilometers south of St. Petersburg will reach the Leningrad region, if we continue traveling looking for the northernmost part finally arrive at a village called Saperny, quiet place with friendly people and picturesque streets like many other towns in Russia.
What makes Saperny different from any other people, not only in Russia but in many other countries is the secret hiding in her womb: a people abandoned and forgotten. Although in reality it is not a people or hidden, it is an abandoned city that was built for that purpose in a military base.
The real question is who and why build a city abandoned. This is nothing less than the scenario that was used for the filming of Stalingrad, directed by Fyodor Bondarchuk. This strange and creepy place was built in about 6 months under a budget of no less than 5 million.
After the filming and production of the film, the scene of Stalingrad has been open to the public and admission is free so you can visit it without affecting your pocket. Stalingrad has become an artificial abandoned worth on any tour by Russian people.
