Description

Murmansk is a city of surprises. Looking at its location above the Arctic Circle, this Alaskan from Kotzebue didn't expect either the verdant landscape nor the warm temperature, even on July 20.

Although it is a little further north than my home, Murmansk benefits from the warm water of the Gulf Stream. The benefits, in addition to warm summer days include an ice-free port that is open year round.

Murmansk is a bustling city of around 400,00 people. With that population it is largest city above the Arctic Circle.

Murmansk is home to a fleet of ice breakers that support shipping to other communities along Russia's north coast.. It also has a railway connecting it to the Russian interior.

There is a lot happening in this panorama. Browse around and see what Murmansk has to offer on a fine summer's day.
