And as a reminder, at reader request, I added a special tag for all my posts with cool city videos in them, so if you are interested in checking out the archives, click here.

    Beautiful. Looks frigid and cold but still beautiful. Videos like this are a wonderful reminder of how many cities out there just like Murmansk that all play a part in this great urban experiment.

    Meh. Too many high level vantage points and too much industrial footage. There was very little to show me what the actual city looks like. I’d like to see more landmarks, destinations, people going about their day.

    Murmansk. Come for the smokestacks and cranes. Stay for… Well, we’re iced in, so you’re staying.
