The story is a bit complicated. In 1910, the Swedes built a town on the Norwegian island of Svalbard for workers from a nearby coal mine. The city was named "Pyramiden" from the shape of the mountain at the foot of which the city was situated. In 1926 the city and the mine were sold to the Soviet Union. Falling coal prices, lower extraction profitability and ever higher costs put the future of the city in question.
Two events were the nail in the coffin: the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 and the plane crash in Svalbard in 1996, where coal workers died. The city has been completely abandoned since 1998 and access to Pyramiden in the future is a big question because of the sanctions imposed on Russia. But who is she?
