Kudrovo is locality on the eastern border of St. Petersburg which until recently has had the status of a village in the Leningrad region. From 1997 to 2007 less then 100 people were living here, the wooden houses were decaying and becoming empty. In 2008, active construction of apartment buildings began which quickly grew into entire microdistricts. The location is considered one of the most built-up in the Leningrad region — from 2012 to 2020 more than two million square meters of housing were built here. In 2018, Kudrovo received the status of a town in the Vsevolozhsk district of the Leningrad region. Today, almost 50 thousand people live here, social infrastructure is actively developing, schools, clinics, kindergartens are opening. Only a few remaining private houses testify to the past of this place, rising in contrast on the background of modern new buildings. Some these houses are still inhabited by people.
