Somewhere down in the limitless woods of Russia’s Ural mountains lies the taboo city of Ozersk. Behind protected doors and security barriers stands a wonderful puzzler an entrancing spot that appears to exist in an alternate measurement.
Codenamed City 40, Ozersk was the origination of the Soviet atomic weapons program after the second world war. For a considerable length of time, this city of 100,000 individuals did not show up on any maps, and its tenants’ personalities were eradicated from the Soviet enumeration.
Today, with its delightful lakes, perfumed blossoms and pleasant tree-lined lanes, Ozersk looks like a rural 1950s American town like one of those as well immaculate spots delineated in The Twilight Zone.
