Oseyev is the abandoned city in Russian Federation.
It was designed as an innovative housing cluster based on the concept of self-sufficiency. However, due to economic miscalculations, construction errors and poor infrastructure planning, it gradually lost its financial attractiveness, began to empty and ended up by becoming a kind of ghetto for low-income families and illegal migrants.
The social environment and the crime situation of the city were considered unfavorable, so the residents were resettled and the territory was closed to visitors.
