The historic base of Nagurskoye

Nagurskoye is Russia’s northernmost base and is located in Alexandra Land. Named after Polish-Russian pilot Jan Nagórski, the base was built in the 1950s as a staging area for US-bound Soviet Long Range Aviation bombers. Nagurskoye is thought to be still in operation.
