    • I’m tempted to go visit – not in winter though! Is there much to do in Salekhard? How long would be good time to stay?

  1. WOW! awesome wilderness, with a hint of human occupation.
    What struck me was the way the shapes of the cranes echo that of the mammoth (monument).

  2. Now that perma-frost in arctic regions is melting so quickly will this entire town sink into the muck ? I’d be building on the nearest high ground with a heliport outside my door.

  3. “Somebody considers that it the only one city in the world located on the Polar circle.” – this is not true. There’s many cities on the Polar circles.
