SOCHI, Russia -

Almost everything was built new for the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Only one thing was left exactly as it's always been, and it may be the last thing you would expect to find in the middle of an Olympic Park.

Hidden behind a screen of fire trees, likes a 100-year-old cemetery.

If you look on the Sochi Olympic Park map, you'll notice a green circle where the cemetery is located.

However, the map has no description.

The Russian government spent more than 51-billion-dollars building the facilities for the games.

The government even had to relocate an entire community of people to make way for the new construction.

In the end, the cemetery is the only thing the Russians could not move out of the way of their ambitious olympic vision.
