    This is a way cool list. We all know Russia has ample secrets. Hey; I just finished watching The Americans 😉 Foreigners cannot get close I know but I have fun just reading about ’em and seeing your images in the post. I feel like each city is dripping with mystery.

      Absolutely, these cities are an absolute mystery and we can’t do much more than guessing what’s going on there 😀

    Hi, interesting article. I have spent quite some time in Russia and never heard about these places.
    One of the signs in your pics shows a pre- reform russian, it’s pretty rare to see.

      Thanks for the comment, Anna. I guess Russia is so huge, one can find old boards with pre-reform orthography in some remote areas.

    This is is the first time I am hearing about these Russian cities and I found your list very intriguing, Dan! Isn’t it even possible to go there as a tourist?

      Thank you for your comment, Lydia. Indeed all of these cities are very intriguing. Visiting is possible but only with acquiring a permit from the FSS (Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation), which is basically a successor of the KGB.
