Russia's high-tech hotspot on the move

Akademgorodok was one of many purpose-built cities in the former Soviet Union. (Another is Zvyozdny gorodok, aka Star City, the center for Russia's cosmonaut training outside Moscow.) Interestingly, its creation was authorized by Nikita Krushchev, who understood the tangible and intangible values of cities.
Not coincidentally, Vasily Ivanovich Chuikov, the general who led the military defense of Stalingrad, was given the honor of commanding the Soviet troops that razed Berlin and ended the war in Europe. (Later Chuikov served as Chief of Civil Defense from 1961 to 1972, a role taken more serious by the Soviets during the Cold War. Just witness the Arbatskiy line of the Moscow metro, which was buried deep enough to survive a nuclear war and requires a harrowing escalator ride down.) He was then buried at the Mamayev Kurgan monument in Stalingrad--the first Soviet Marshal to be buried outside of Moscow.
