Murmansk is the biggest city north of the polar circle in the world. The city itself is not very beautiful, though the city center has a number of nice, renovated buildings. For the friends of soviet era relics it is a paradise!

The city of Severomorsk (20km north of Murmansk) is still closed for foreigners and even for russians! If you want to discover this region individually, you should speak at least a little bit russian or have a russian friend; but you can easily find somebody there, who will help you. The people here in the north are more friendly than in Moscow or St.Petersburg.
