 Murmansk is a port city and the administrative center of Murmansk Oblast, Russia, located in the extreme northwest part of Russia, on the Kola Bay, an inlet of the Barents Sea on the northern shore of the Kola Peninsula, close to the Russia's borders with Norway and Finland.

Despite its extreme northern location above the Arctic Circle, Murmansk tends to be nearly the same as any other Russian city of its size, featuring highway and railway access to the rest of Europe, a railway station, and the northernmost trolleybus system on Earth.

Although Murmansk's population is in decline—299,148 (2014 est.) it remains the largest city north of the Arctic Circle.

WOW! I'm actually super excited with this card from Russia because it
comes from an Arctic city! Thanks to Valentina via Postcrossing for the card.
