Pyramiden a Russian Ghost Town | Travel Film from Svalbard with Drone

Published on Apr 2, 2021
Pyramiden is an abandoned ghost town 78,4 degrees north. Only 800 miles from the North Pole. Take a tour with me in inside this deserted town from the Soviet - Era.One of the northernmost permanent settlements.

And maybe, just maybe, I will show you how it looks from above!

I say maybe because sometimes not everything goes as planned.

Come with me as I walk through the city and inside the cultural center where I will "play" on the northernmost piano.

I have one major goal here. As a man with a drone I have my mind set that I want to fly in and over this abandoned russian town. And this is a unique location! A premium destination to explore.


This town was founded by Sweden in 1910 and sold to Soviet Union in 1927.

In 1998 all 1000 inhabitants was gone leaving everything behind.

Today only six people inhabit this village, working as guides or in the hotel or the bar made availble for the tourist that travel here.

The buildings is, and will be, preserved a long time ,up to 500 years, because of the artic climate.

In the city they had a hospital, kindergarden, school, a house for single women, one for single men and one for the families. The latter called "the Mad House" because of all the noise.

This is the final part of my 3 part series from Svalbard or Spitsbergen as it is also refered to. And what a trip it has been. So much we experienced in this short time. Fossilhunting in Longyearbyen, Boattrip on the road to the Pyramid and finally this tour through and maybe over Pyramiden.

I ve spent alot of time on these videos and I hope that you appreciate the effort I put into these drone film /videos. And I hope you will like and subscribe to my channel!
