Vozrozhdeniya Island

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vozrozhdeniya_Island

No longer an island...

This former island in the shrinking Aral Sea was the site of the Soviet Union's biological warfare research. Here, deadly viruses and bacteria were developed and tested for possible weaponization. Successes apparently include weaponized variola using the India-1967 strain of the virus as well as anthrax, plague and certain flesh eating diseases. Not a nice place...and poorly guarded, today. Sleep well...
