On the top of the world at Svalbard, an archipelago situated between Norway and the North Pole, is a place that the world forgot for nearly a decade, a Russian mining settlement established by Sweden in 1910 but then sold to the Soviet Union in 1927, then completely abandoned in 1998. It’s only reachable with driving 140 km with a snowmobile during winter.

 

The Pyramiden sign. Fun fact: the painter who painted the sign lived in Moscow and had never seen a Polar Bear, so he painted it like a dog without a tail
