People may find surprising that colorfull flowers bloom in Norilsk City, but they do in the summer and they are really beautiful.
We are in Siberia, and we have the coldest temperatures in earth. Even under these extreme circumstances, flowers, people and flowers bloom in Norilsk.
I can understand that foreigners have a bad image of Norilsk just because we are in Russia. We have a lot of things to improve, and we acknowledge that. Nevertheless, we have millions of good things to be proud of.
Could you imagine that we have fresh food all year round thanks to ships that cross the Artic Ocean and full our tables with fruits, vegetables, meet, poultry and even delicatessen.
People may think about Siberia as a dark, cold, and lonely place, but it could be a spot on Earth as bright, warm and full of life as any other.
That is why I love Norislk, Russia, in my beautiful Siberia!
