A city’s street is like a face to the body. It what you first get to see and it’s what stays with you in your memory long after you leave it. Having great streets mapped out to suit modern life can be very critical for any city’s growth and development.
While the weather allows it, taking long strolls in my Siberian city streets that can easily be seen with a Norilsk map, is a real pleasure.
Norilsk city is always a delight to watch whether from afar or right inside it. It amazing bright colored blocks of buildings makes it look like a rainbow display. I made it my mission to have a taste of going for a walk in the early morning, in the hustle and bustle of the afternoon and at night to experience the whole course of this sumptuous experience
Morning Walks in the streets covered with white snow in Norilsk
There just no time like the mornings. If you are an early riser like me, you often get stuck for want of what to do before the day breaks and activities start. Not so much on my trip here in Norilsk.
I have taken it almost as a daily ritual to strike out very early in the morning for my leisurely strolls. The streets are absolutely quiet as I course through its wide and well aligned streets. I often get into fantasizing to be an explorer try to map out the whole city. As I try to pinpoint what building stays where and what monument is located in what street.
A few times I bump into other early risers as myself as I explore who immediately smile and wave a greeting. I get to experience firsthand as the sun makes its first appearance for the day. An exhilarating display of light and colors it always turns out to be. Soon after day breaks I rush back to my lodgings in order to suck in the inspiring experience
Afternoon Strolls to relax in Norilsk streets
Like every bustling city Norilsk is always bubbling with life in the afternoons. With the sun at its zenith, and everyone on the move, I sometimes take the afternoons for brief walks to better understand how the people socialize.
It is only in the afternoon that you will be able to experience the full life of its beautiful plazas and its famous commuter buses ferrying people from place to place. It’s really in the afternoon that you can experience Norilsk in its full glory.
