Pyramiden, Svalbard, Norway 1 100x100

This Arctic town, famous for its coal mines, was a property of the USSR. It used to be a perfect Soviet settlement with shacks, sport centers, and a bust of Lenin. After the mine had been used up, the workers deserted the town in 1998, leaving all the buildings behind. There is the library full of books, the theatre, and the concert hall with one of the most beautiful pianos in the world.
