Lonely Planet review

Learn all about Soviet polar explorations at the Arctic & Antarctic Museum . Apart from stuffed polar bears and the like, the most impressive exhibit is a wooden boat plane hanging from the ceiling. Check out the informative website, though, for details of Vicaar, an Arctic expedition and tourism agency linked to the museum. The exterior of the former Old Believers’ Church of St Nicholas in which the museum is based has been recently restored to its former glory.
