This was the time when it had nuclear weapons rivalry with America. Russia's first nuclear bomb was prepared at the Scientific Research Institute of Experimental Physics in Sarov. To ensure that no one is aware, all three cities were not even shown on the map.

Found out after the Soviet Union split
After the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1990, the world came to know about these secret cities that such cities also exist. At that time, even trains or buses did not go there, but only very special people could reach there with a pass. These people were scientists working on nuclear weapons, their families and people holding high positions in Russia. To enable important letters to reach the scientists and employees working at those places, there used to be a special postal code here, like the postal code of Sarov was – Arzamas-16. No one knew who lived there and what they did?
