Exploring “Ghost City” (город-призрак) in Seredinkovo, Russia

For more bizarre and beautiful photos from “Ghost City” in Seredinkovo, explore the Город Призрак location page.

Old taverns, abandoned docks and ghost ships are all part of “Ghost City” (город-призрак), a park located in the small town of Seredinkovo in the Russian countryside. The park premises were originally constructed as a Russian movie set in 2010, and were designed to look like an 18th-century European city. Now open to the public, the former film set allows visitors to explore the “city” and dress up in period costumes. With replicas of prisons, gallows, hotels, cemeteries, a fort and more, the park offers opportunities to capture time-worn landscapes for visitors and Instagrammers alike.

Sochi Olympic Site Looks Like A Ghost City 6 Months Later 

Rosa Khutor, which was one of the main hubs of the 2014 Sochi Olympics, is “completely empty” six months after the games, according Russian photographer Alexander Belenkiy.

Rosa Khutor is located near the mountain town of Krasnaya Polyana. It was the center of the “mountain cluster” of 2014 Olympic venues. One of the Olympic Villages was built there, and it was the base for mountain events like skiing and snowboarding.

Belenkiy called the town “lifeless” in a post on his Live Journal blog. He said the shops, restaurants, and hotels were operating at 5% capacity and that he encountered only a handful of tourists on the streets.

The Sochi Olympics cost $51 billion. A good chunk of that went toward building the mountain cluster. The Russian government spent $8.7 billion on a 31-mile road and railway system to connect Krasnaya Polyana to the coastal neighborhood of Adler. Another $2 billion was spent to build the Rosa Khutor ski resort.

Here’s what it looks like six months later:
