Upper Mandrogi village is an old Russian settlement in Saint Petersburg Region by the coast of the river Svir'. The village was a concentration camp during 1930-s reprisals (where prisoners were mining pebble for construction of the local power station dam). Having lost all male population during Finnish occupation in World War II, the settlement had finally died away in 1950s.

The core of a new settlement consists of 6 big wooden buildings made in traditional style and the "huts" for the local canteen and guest houses.


The craftsmens village, Post-office, Hotel, Pub, and five apartment houses were designed in national romanticism style typical for the beginning of the 20th century. "The Tavern", Merchant yard and the Rolling hill were designed in mid-19th century Russian style. Rolling hill is a replica of an old project, published by the "Architect" magazine back in 1878, whereas "Manor" is a wooden Russian version of an Empire style in which many Russian manors were built in XIX and the beginning of XX century.
