Murmansk city`s landscape.



Pretty trails lead up to the monument of a WWII soldier.



His name is "Alyosha" (Alex). The same one plased in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The farewell photo.



We have left Murmansk. There was a lot of polar grouses, they darted from the front wheel sometimes.




The monument of warriors of Polar Division of Red Army.



Copies of soldiers` dying letters.



A tarmac has ended. We entered Sredniy peninsula, the only way to Rybachiy.




We have stayed for the night near the place, where were printed the soviet most northern newspaper "Severomorets".




It`s the abandoned city on the other shore of the bay, on Rybachiy.



The road to Rybachiy:




Leaving the camp.







A water crossing.



There was a lot of creeks that cross the road, or just some large puddles.



An abandoned Russian military base:







We have found the camouflage net.



On the shore:





The view from the inside of some military defence construction:



There was a lot of very evil mosquitoes. It was almost impossible to stop - they started to sting.





The polar night.



Some military base:



Than we have reached Nemetskiy cap. It`s just slightly south than Nordcape.
