About this book

Language: Multilingual in English, German, French, Norwegian, and Russian; captions in English

Ny Ålesund was once the northern-most mining place in the world. It was from here that the legendary Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen started crossing the North Pole in 1926 with the airship “Norge”. Nowadays Ny Ålesund is a centre of Polar science.

During the Polar night’s time, some 40 scientists are working in the station. At the time of the midnight sun their number raises up to 150, coming from over 18 nations.

In 2010, Austrian national Joachim Haschek started his very own expedition to capture the village, the landscape and biota of Ny-Ålesund and Kongsfjord in pictures.
