Small Abandoned Town Was Rebuilt into Colorful Arctic Town Yansk in Russia

Small Abandoned Town Was Rebuilt into Colorful Arctic Town Yansk in Russia

This town has just 300 people living in it. It could look like many other small abandoned Soviet towns in the Arctic but it isn’t. Instead it was rebuilt and looks pretty nice. Pretty much a model of what they all had to look like in this region. Let’s take a look.
