Only 4 hours flight from St. Petersburg and you find yourself in such a different place beyond the Polar Circle.
Sometimes winters here are -50C (-58F) cold. Since the Soviet time the city has been rather industrial. Much rare metal such as nickel has been extracted right near the city.
Many flats are offered for sale.

Norilsk is full of expensive SUVs and there is an awesome gourmet food variety, including rare fishes. There are plenty of foreigners in the hotel and visiting the local museums.
