  1. Desolate, unfriendly and cold looking place.

    Who in their right mind would want to live there and be stuck in a five story concrete apartment building with little to do from a recreational standpoint. I guess the only jobs are unloading freighters or working at the floating nuclear power plant. This looks like a good place to send convicted criminals to serve their “time”.

  2. Stunning pictures. It always amazes me the places that humans end up inhabiting – even in ancient times there were always those that seem to have picked the most inhospitable places to call home. There certainly is a beauty in the surrounding landscape, although I can just imagine what winters here must be like (although probably still much better than more inland Siberia).
