    Go to the Murmansk Region...

    by LotharAdam Updated Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Go to the Murmansk Region Museum - ask at the Hotel desk for the way. It may be good to use the electric bus, but you can walk, too. It's about 30 min to walk from Hotel Polyarnie Zory, and you are going through the whole 'City Center'. Unfortunately, all texts in the museum are only in russian, but you can see many interesting exhibits.
    There are many other museums in Murmansk - a atom museum, a technical museum, a military museum - take the folder 'what to do in Murmansk', it's available at the Hotels desk in English language.
    Murmansk is a town, that's founded in the early 1900, and before the 2nd world war there have lived only a few thousand people. Today the town has about 400.000 habitants and the region with the neighbour towns has about 800.000 - 1 Mio people. Most of them are living in high-rise buildings.

    Tourists come here not so often, so people are quite helpful, not like in Moscow, for example.I recommend to visit Local museum in the end of central Lenin street, Art gallery, and do not forget Navy museum situated on the suburbs on the north of the city in Rosta, it's on the way to Atomic icebreaker base. Not much to see really.Enjoy the wonderful nature. Recently the snow-scooter rides are offered by MKTI company outside the city.
