The Red Triangle Factory complex is a huge industrial zone in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

It was founded in 1860 by Hamburg merchant F. Krauskopf and his companions as the Russian-American Rubber Manufacture Association, since 1908 it was called “Треугольник”: Triangle.

The main products of the plant were rubber overshoes. Up to the late 19th century the plant was country monopolist in this sector of the market while, in the 20th century, it was the largest enterprise of rubber goods production in Russia and Europe. During WWI (1914-18) it produced automobile tyre casings, gas masks, and artillery buffers. In 1918 the plant was nationalised and then called “Красный Треугольник”: Red Triangle.

Today the enormous property is a mix of abandoned buildings, small companies, garages, and rehearsal spaces for musicians. But mostly it is a decaying wasteland, a monument to the old industrialization of the city. This is one of the favorite places for filmmakers to shoot films about the Second World War.
