20 Hibini Mountains

Hibini Mountains

Russian Mountains near Murmans, Hibini Mountains

We have mentioned some time ago the abandoned cities of Kola Peninsula, left by people and Russian army, now standing alone with only severe Northern winds inhabiting them.
This place is also on Kola Cape, but they got better fate. One of the reasons for this is because of the Hibini mountains, which got this region a travel twist. Now around some abandoned Soviet structures one can use the ski lifts and skiing trace.

        I like them all. English Russia is amazing. I can’t wait to get to Russia and ride horses with Uncle pasha’s and pretend I am a Cossack.

        The dog was a bit sad though. Why is he here all by himself? Hope his owner remembered him and got him a big bone.

    I don’t get it. Is this ski lift abandoned or not? (Looks abandoned in the photos). So how is this a better fate than the other buildings?
