I'm not sure "The Doomed City" by the Strugatski Brothers counts, but I'll put it here anyway. It all happens in some weird place where people from different places and periods in time are part of some kind of experiment. Societys are being formed and destroyed and outside the city lie the ruins of places where it seems past experiments have taken place. Or perhaps parts of the current experiment. So there is definitely a postapocalyptic vibe there, but it's most certainly not the usual kind of such a story and it's more Kafka than straight out Sci-Fi.
And the Strugatski's "Roadside Picnic" is also somewhat postapocaliptic, people might know it as the inspiration for the movie Stalker and the unrelated game.

Station 11.

Excellent new spin on the total collapse and then fragile re-building of society after a super-flu.
