    Bowling centre

    Just there is a very modern Bowling Centre. There's a possibility to eat something while you are bowling. It's all very new, the bowlingballs have beautiful colours.

    And last but not least; every weekend there's a competition. With this one can win a CAR! A real car. That's what local people said to us. The only thing we had to do was get a ticket to deal in this weekendcompetition at the town hall. We didn't manage it.. But I'm sure it was possible to take part in this competion.

    An absolutely recommend; visit this bowling centre. You won't regret.

  • if you want to see hell:...

    if you want to see hell: stay in Nikel'! This Nickel mining town is situated 7 km from Norway, but you could be in northeastern Siberia. Over the years the minig operations destroyed the nature over 50km in all directions. If you want to see a horrible example of postcommunist apocalypse, go there. You must organise it in advance, and make the reservation for the only hotel there (Gostinitsa Uyut) at Inturist Murmansk. For further travel to Norway, let them organize a taxi. They will ask you, what you want to do there. Just say ''tourism'', and insist. The ''best'' way to go there is to take the train from Murmansk (daily, except sat); for this 196km trip it takes 8 hours!!!! When you arrrive there, ask somebody to show you the hotel, there's no chance that you will find it yourself. It's entry is situated in a backyard, and on the street's side there is nothing written about a hotel. After finding the entry (see pic), you must climb to the 4 th floor, where your odissey will end. We were there at russian christmas (jan. 6th), so there was a big party with DJ's and people dancing on the main square at -20 degrees! Very strange!! In the kinoteatr, there's even a disco. Don't miss this experience.
