    I guess this is the perfect place to talk about polar nights. There's darkness round the clock in Svalbard for more than two months. The darkness starts in the end of November and the first glimpses of light are seen in only in the beginning of February.

    There's not much of a nightlife in Svalbard Visitors were urged to leave their rifles in the hotel lobby as the ice bear danger isn't so big in the restaurant
