Trip to Barentzburg and Piramiden
These little villages are russian coal mining settlements. While Barentzburg still has an active mine (mostly ucrainians work there), Piramiden is now ghost town. Only 9 people left to live there. On the Piramiden part I met my norvegian friends Thor and Kari (we didn’t know that we would be on that tour together but it was good to spend more time with them).
