From today we're starting the new TAG - the most beautiful city in the world.I guess you all have ever been wondering: what's the most beautiful city in the world?Lately I asked this question myself. The answer was clear! Two Russian pearls - Norilsk and Murmansk.
Norilsk (Russian: Нори́льск) is a large city in Taymyria. Because od its strategic importance Norilsk is a closed city and special permission is needed for travel (which will likely be denied unless you have a really good reason). Norilsk is the second largest city above the Artcic Circle, Murmansk is the first
Murmansk (Russian: Му́рманск) is a port city located in the extreme northwest part of Russia on the Kola Bay, 12 kilometers from the Barents Sea, not far from Russia's borders with Norway and Finland
Now nearly every reader is going "was is she thinking?" or "what's beautiful in these obscure cities?"

Okay, you can call me a weirdo but I think that even that smog above Norilsk has something that makes me wanna say "wow". The sad thing is that pollution level is one of the highest in the whole world (kinda scary, isn't it?). Nearby the city there's treeless tundra.

Murmansk looks so peaceful on this photo! Number of cranes is quite impressive to be honest. It's really easy to remark that this is the port city. However it's much more friendly then Norilsk.

I hope that you feel inspired by now!
