The abandoned town of Bechyovinka, formerly a secret submarine base, is on the island of Kamchatka and is also called Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskya located a few kilometers down the bay from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskya.

You can look it up on Google Maps and you'll see that there's only a blurred out satellite view available, showing that it's very much at the end of the world, on the tip of the peninsula... indeed a perfect spot for a secret base.
