What Are Russia’s Closed Cities?

Perm, Russia

FACT OF THE DAY: Russia’s closed cities were literally cities that were “closed”. Only certain residents were allowed to enter. They wouldn’t show up on maps (not till 1993). If you were allowed to enter them, you had to keep it a secret. Trains and bus routes would not go to these cities. These cities were created in order to hide Russia’s research and work for their nuclear weapons program.
