Norilsk is the northernmost city in the world and is a mining town. It has been a closed city to foreigners for a decade.

Lying north of the Arctic Circle, there is no daylight for six weeks from mid-December to mid-January. In mid summer, it sees continuous daylight AKA the “midnight sun.”

Its a very harsh place to live, if you like constant snow and below freezing sub-zero temperatures.

What’s it like if you don’t like them?
