Where is the Svalbard archipelago
About the Svalbard archipelago
The western shores of the Svalbard archipelago are washed by a branch of the warm Gulf Stream, which is why the temperature in the archipelago is higher than in similar areas in the same latitudes: the average summer temperature is +6 degrees, winter - 15 degrees.
In the footsteps of researchers
Existing and derelict buildings
Midnight sun and polar night
Here, the midnight sun and the polar night are expressed sharply, 120 days per year the sun does not dip below the horizon and 127 days per year are spent in utter darkness.
This is a territory where it is possible to watch a change of seasons and colors, as well as to see a contrast between a day and a night.
There is a sports and leisure center with a great movie collection in the town of Pyramiden.
There is one of the oldest and biggest town buildings in Barentsburg. This is a canteen and a family house of Mikhail Plisetsky, the first mine head on Svalbard and the father of a world-famous ballerina, Maya Plisetskaya.
Next to the mine, there have been remained Dutch structures, which were built in early XX century.
Unparalleled locations at the edge of the world
This is a Russian mining town abandoned in 1998.
The town was called due to the pyramid-shaped mountain, at the bottom of which the town was established.
Grumant is a town where bituminous coal deposits were first discovered.
After that, the first coal mine was built here.
