Festival of the North in Murmansk

The Festival of the North is an annual sports event in about 20 winter sports that takes place in the towns of the Murmansk region in March and April since 1934. The first Murmansk Ski Marathon took place on March 31, 1974. The Murmansk Ski Marathon is usually held on the first Sunday in April in Murmansk and accompanied with traditional reindeer competitions. It seems to be the peak of the North Festival. It is really worth to see or even to participate! Beside it you can watch Murmansk city which is the largest seaport in the Russian Far North, and fully deserves its title as the "Gateway to the Arctic". More than a dozen merchant, fishing, icebreaking, research and military fleets make their base here. The city has a lot of places of interests like the First Nuclear Icebreaker "Lenin", the Naval Museum, the Ship Company Museum, and the Oceanarium as well as the Regional Historical Museum, the Art Museum and the Folk Art Center. One of highlights of the city is Second World War Memorial "ALESHA". The majestic monument for The Defenders of the Arctic was installed on a high hill above Murmansk in 1974 in memory of the War; a figure of a watchman with a rifle of a height of 34 meters, which is visible almost from any point of the city.
