City in permafrost

Norilsk is the northernmost city in the world with a population of over 150 thousand people. It is located 300 km north of the Arctic Circle, in the permafrost territory. For more than half a year there is a polar night here.

Norilsk is an industrial city, there are many industries that are harmful to the environment. In addition, Norilsk is associated with the history of the GULAG camps. Here were some of the deadliest Stalinist camps.

This city was a revelation for me. I expected to see a smoky sky and an oppressive atmosphere. But the city turned out to be full of light, a combination of shades of white and blue.
