Frozen time: Abandoned facilities in the urban locality of Dikson

Frozen time: Abandoned facilities in the urban locality of Dikson

Dikson is the northernmost urban locality in Russia and one of the northernmost human settlement on the planet. Some years ago there were about 6000 people living there, but now it is only around 600 people left. And, somehow they still live there. Since the population of the settlement is declining, we can find a lot of abandoned facilities and buildings there including apartment houses which are totally frozen for most of the time.

Continuation is here: Unique technics and vehicles of the work settlement of Dikson.
