Abandoned Ski Jump In Murmansk

Abandoned Ski Jump In Murmansk 1

This old ski jump is towering over Murmansk like a huge dinosaur. But a 50m skeleton and this old wooden “skin” is everything that has remained from the pride of the local skiers.

Wonderful views can be seen from above the ski jump , but today we focus only upon rusted metal and decaying wood. Comment is needless.
