Description

Ny-Ålesund is located in the middle of Kongsfjorden, about 100 km north of Longyearbyen. This small, beautifully situated settlement with about 30 inhabitants (in summer increasing its number to 150 – scientists from 15 countries) is often referred to as the northern end of civilization. Everything is “the northernmost” here. In total, there are 60 buildings – the northernmost post office, a few hotels, a local historical museum, a cafe, a souvenir shop.
Ny-Ålesund also has its own marina and a landing field for small aircraft. It has also been an international arctic research centre and environmental monitoring centre since 1964. Currently, Ny-Ålesund is also a tourist center. Every year about 20,000 tourists visit this place.
