Ghost Town Sports

An old sports hall in the former Russian coal-mining town of Pyramiden on Svalbard, abandoned 20 years ago and now a ghost town. While the sports hall has long been abandoned, the facilities still remain, sports equipment still stands where it was left and the saunas still bear the hallmark smell of wet, burned wood.
