What Is It Like To Stay On The Kola Peninsula? Part II

Posted on January 10, 2012 by

Let’s continue our journey going now to Teriberka Village and its boat cemetery. The village used to be a large fishing center and began to decay in the 60s when coastal fishing lost its significance. Besides, it so happened that to deliver fish to the village, it is necessary to first register it in the city of Murmansk which makes it unprofitable. As a result, the fish factory of Teriberka is experiencing hard times too.

Still, Teriberka has an operational guarded port.

This is an abandoned part of the port of Teriberka.

Red tape makes it almost impossible for local people to go in for fishing.

    Nice place for a commune (volume 2). And thanks for the “heads up” on the advice about the “young men on a jalopy”. They are not invited into the commune…
