AWESOME pics, thanks a bunch. I can't get enough of these grey, sad commieblocks, but thats not to say I'd like to live there. I reckon it could really get a person down, and the weather wouldn't help a bit.

awesome, thanks a bunch! Love them. Just a question, is this sort of housing/landscaping considered 'normal' housing? Do average families/workers live in them? They just seem so wasteland-ish although to the ppl that reside there, I'm sure it's just 'home.'

I admit it's looks very depressing and awfull. This city was build in commie times because of huge natural resources but the salaries are very high there for russian standards. Most people in the Nickel factory earn few thousend bucks a month ! Many people work until they earned enough money and move to normal russian cities which are not so depressing !

Nature in and around Norilsk is pretty much raped in the most permanent way and the city's one of the most polluted cities in the world. A masterpiece conducted by nickel industry and the SU.

hahaha what kind of nature will stay alive in this kind of temperatures.

The city has an average temperature of -40 -50 sometimes -60 in the winter. If Lucky you have daylight and a few hours of sunshine during the winter. Kids go to special treatment there like solariums where they get extra vitamine D for their skin

Why do you ask me if I am serious if you think yourself that it's a depressing city and that people move to other normal cities after having earned money in that city?

these pictures cause a weird feeling inside me, I can't describe it. I wouldn't like to live in such a place but still there is something special. It looks so surreal and like a deserted city which the nature is trying to conquer again. I am even not sure if that's the feeling I have, it's a bit weird.

That's still doesn't mean that people commit suicide there. Suicide rate is actually much lower then in other parts of Russia.

by the way, In Russia almost all people live in apartment houses. In Moscow, Saint-Petrsburg or Norilsk you will not find any individual house! it is normal and nobody complains.

Here very small quantity of individual houses, it is unpopular habitation as the core and they are located far on suburbs.
