Довольно любопытно, немного скучновато

Нам порекомендовали этот музей как единственную достойную достопримечательность города. В музее представлена довольно богатая коллекция камней с описанием и изделия из них. Есть магазинчик сувениров. есть что выбрать.

Уникальный музей!!!

В Мончегорске всего 2 музея (впрочем, для города с 40-тысячным населением и это, я думаю, неплохо!), и оба они оказались на удивление высокого качества!Музей истории города расположен в неказистом двухэтажном здании на набережной озера Лумболка. Несколько

Центральная площадь типичного советского города

Мончегорск любопытен тем, что две основные его магистрали, образующие основу дорожной сети – проспект Металлургов и проспект Ленина – ориентированы строго по сторонам света: проспект Металлургов, который во времена моего детства именовался проспектом Ждан

Amazing experience with Husky Farm tour by Kola Travel

When we -a group of 5 from Thailand, a country from tropical region- had planned to visit an arctic region for chasing the northern lights and decided to go to Murmansk in Kola peninsula, northwest Russia, the major difficulty for traveling in Russia is of course a language to communicate about no matter renting a car, asking for tour programs and more.To ease difficulty in communication, I contacted Kola Travel and asked them a lot of questions( in English) about traveling in Murmansk and Kola peninsula and Svetlana always responded me with useful information. We then decided to book a rental car and Husky Farm tour from Kola Travel, and we had an amazing experience of riding husky sledge in a very beautiful sledding track. Great communication, trustworthy company.Phasit Chan-inThailand
