As the breeze blew through the roots of my hair, I glanced around and took in the beautiful serenity of the lush sorroundings of Norilsk. With the ambience so cool and the skies so blue, it was really a sight to behold. Seeing really is believing I tell you.
Sitting about 200 miles above the Arctic Circle, Norilsk in the summer leaves you with breathtaking sights to behold. Gently as the taxi eased pass the streets, I eagerly sat up in my seat tying to store up as much images my eyes could see and it just wasn’t enough. The city is sorrounded with unimaginable landscapes and it truly gave me pictures I would not be forgetting in a long time.
Norilsk is blessed with the best amazing features nature has to offer and I smiled softly making an offhand comment about how gorgeous and peaceful the blue sky looked. The very friendly driver who picked me from the airport told me to “Wait until it rains” and I laughed in reply wondering what he meant. Fortunately, before my visit to the beautiful city ended, nature decided to give me a wonderful treat, it rained!
I was truly mesmerized as I saw clear water in pearl like droplets sprinkling down making an amazing picture of nature’s gift to this fine city. The light shower from the sky, coupled with the incredible lighting of the city gave it a special effect that was worth a mental picture. It looked like a magnificent painting!
Little did I know that when dawn broke, I was going to be greeted by even a more amazing sight. As birds chirped and flew by, I was able to see different kinds of birds, ones that I had never even seen before! I truly was jealous of the inhabitants of this city because of these amazing sights they enjoy every given day! Later in the evening as the birds flitted by, I was able to feed some and the gesture felt truly special to me.
With the city so peaceful, all you want to do is just take walks around to admire effectively the work of nature. And with those beautiful plants to lighten up sidewalks and beautify the city, all I did was have fun while I learnt a great deal about nature in the most practical way ever. The land truly is green on this side. There were very beautiful tall trees lining up everywhere bending over in adoration of their glorious surrounding.
Coming to this city, I initially didn’t know what to expect but if asked a thousand times over, my answer would still be that I am glad I came down here! By visiting this city, I was able to tap into an amazing city with jaw dropping horizons and an enviably serene (the serenity is just everything!) environment. While this visit was for a short while, I sure will be returning to get a fuller dose of nature’s goodness to the beautiful city of Norilsk.
