Murmansk Sports & Outdoors: 1 reviews and 1 photos


Every year in april in Murmansk there is held the Festival of The North (in 2004 it will be the 70th issue).
During 2 weeks there are different competions in all kinds of winter sports.
Without any doubt for spectators the most interesting competitions are ice swimming (a big whole is cutted into the ice on Semyonovskoye lake) and the reindeer races (at the dolina uyuta sports centre).
Everybody can participate at the Big Ski Marathon, which attracts a lot of sportsmen even from western europe.
