In the village Serednikovo of Moscow region, you can find a film set, created in the style of Vyborg of the 18th century. Vyborg is a town on the Baltic coast of Russia, founded in 1293. It is the unique and the only Western European city with a history dating back to the deep Middle Ages.
The first thing you notice in the artificial city is a port. All the water was poured out, and you will see the bottom of the pool covered with ruberoid. As in any other commercial port, there is a cargo crane there, made completely from wood. Right behind the crane, you will find a hotel "Lion's". If you walk along the embankment from the hotel, you can reach a city square with a scaffold. There is a washstand in the square with an exact date of the action time - 1710. According to the scenario of the movie, which was made there, the action unfolds in Vyborg right after the death of Peter the First.
The film set looks very real. It's a favourite place of many photographers and tourists.
