The ghost town Piligrim Porto will make you feel like a time traveller: old houses, narrow streets, the Catholic Church, guillotine and even a full-size ship stranded on land!
Piligrim Porto features the small town of the 18th century. Some houses fairly accurately depict the architecture of that time. Visitors can enter some buildings, but most of them are just boxes without any content. The town was founded on the banks of the river Goretovka in the summer of 2010 during the filming of a detective historical series.
Piligrim Porto town is supposed to be the perfect place for costume photo shoots.
