Abandoned Playground

A deserted playground in the former Russian coal-mining town of Pyramiden on Svalbard, halfway between Norway and the North Pole. Abandoned 20 years ago and now a ghost town, the laughter that used to fill this place is long gone, the only sound being the wind and the screams of seagulls.
