Barentsburg

Barentsburg visit on Arctic cruise

An active Russian mining town with some great visitor points

Information about Barentsburg

An active Russian mining town on the hillside of Grønfjorden, that has fallen on hard

times, and it can look bleak and stark.

But it is a great place to walk around with the Soviet architecture. There is a hotel, a souvenir shop, a museum, and recently, with more investment, a brewery. Most of the cruises do not visit, but it is easy to see on a clear day sailing in or out of Isfjorden. It is a popular day trip from Longyearbyen, and you could even stay overnight.

Interesting facts about Barentsburg

There is a mural of forest on one of the walls to remind people of home. They also put on Russian shows at the cultural centre!
