9 A Day in the Abandoned Arctic Settlement

A Day in the Abandoned Arctic Settlement

Posted on December 2, 2013 by team

One day with Vladimir, 33, a guide who worked in Pyramid settlement (Spitsbergen, the Arctic region) in spring 2013. This settlement is located about 1300 km away from the North Pole. There are only two cities on the whole archipelago but officially nobody lives in Pyramid today.

So welcome to the the very end of the earth!

Pyramid has been a ghost city since 1998. Today it’s popular tourist destination of Norwegians.

 Vladimir wakes up at 7-30, his cellphone does not catch a signal here. There are no radio, TV, Internet in the village. However we can try to catch a signal from Norway in the so-called “emotional spot” or “spot of hope”. It is marked by a pole.

Vladimir lives in “Tulip” hotel built in the Soviet times, nine years before the village conservation.
