Olenegorsk, “Deer mountain city”

kola-map

A town of 20+ thousand, ~100km south from Murmansk, built around an iron ore mine in the 50s. A local transportation hub, with a railroad and a bus station. One can get to Lovozero or Revda by public transit only via Olenegorsk – I’m at the moment searching for a way to get to Lovozero without a car because I have an interpreting assignment there on Jan. 15th while our car is thinking of losing one of its wheels, and that’s what prompted me to write this note on Olenegorsk.
