Have you ever heard of a place called Niigata Russian Village? It was located in Japan and is abandoned now.
Following the fall of the USSR a crowd of tourists consisting both of businessmen and those willing to sell old Japanese cars in Russia invaded Japan. The number of Russian citizens living next to eastern ports increased hundreds of times leading to launching an entertainment park next to Niigata city in 1993. The place was called Niigata Russian Village and embraced a church, hotel, museums, restaurants, circus and many other buildings. The village had been there for 10 years and ceased to exist after collapse of the financing bank. Let’s see in detail what is left till today.
The village is located several kilometers away from the railway and could be reached only by cars. A copy of Suzdal Cathedral is situated next to the parking lot as well as a hotel building that served as an example of classical architecture.
The hotel called Petite was set on fire three years ago. The main tower and many hotel rooms suffered a lot.
