faq: what else i can see in murmansk and around?

Teriberka village on the Barents Sea coast is a must-visit during any time of the year. Located on the shore of Barents Sea, 120km, three hours’ drive from Murmansk, this small village has just 617 residents and a wide selection of picturesque houses that could serve as art objects or as a set for horror films.

During the tour of the village, you will stop at several locations, such as a wooden ship's “cemetery”, which is older than 100 years and started from Imperial times. Then, head to the Arctic Ocean coast for the weird and wonderful photos of frozen rocks and tundra against the Barents Sea, and a magnificent waterfall that flows into the Arctic Ocean. The way to Teriberka from Murmansk lies through the tundra. Its views do not leave anyone indifferent and are definitely worth a photo stop.

An important thing☝: the road to Teriberka can be closed due to weather conditions. Better not to plan your trip to Teriberka on the last day of your trip to have an opportunity to shift it to another day.

Snow Village is a must-see for families with children; however, it is interesting for adult travelers, too. This unique project started in 2008 and it is now a big art complex made of snow and ice. The Snow Village looks like a cave with multiple rooms; each room made in its own style with sculptures and carvings of snow and ice. The most peculiar thing about it is that it is totally made by human hands without any artificial materials. Note☝: Snow Village operates only from 25th of December until the end of April.
