Filmmaker Reveals 100-Year-Old Soviet Ghost Town

By | October 9, 2016

At one time the coal-mining settlement of Pyramiden, Norway had a population of over 1,000 residents and workers. It's population today? Six.

In this short documentary, filmmaker David Beazley leads a tour through the Arctic ghost town. Thanks to Pyramiden's naturally extreme cold climate there's a very slow rate of decay, which leaves the settlement in eerily pristine form.
