I visited the island group Svalbard on the last few days of May, 2004. Svalbard is only about 1300 km from the North Pole Point, and enjoys midnight sun for four months during summer. In addition to Norwegian settlements, there are also a large Russian settlement, and a smaller Polish one.
Pictures from Longyearbyen and surrounding area. Longyearbyen is the largest settlement and the administrative center of Svalbard.
