First, in December 2015 one of our favourite travel companies of the Kola Peninsula, “Kola Expeditions“, have opened a Visitor Center in the City of Kirovsk, Murmansk region, near the Botanical Gardens by the Snow Village, behind the Tirvas Health Center (“Profilaktoriy Tirvas”), about two-hour drive from Kandalaksha.
Second, the Visitor Center also serves as a snowmobile center. Snowmobile tours, a total of 15 routes of varying length and level of complexity to the Khibiny Mountains, start from there. They have a set of lovingly selected snowmobiles equipped for riders of any size and shape, a team of great guides, and are famous for their love for people that cannot be described as anything less than angelic.
Third, an exhibition of works by Anna Mikhailova and Dimitry Novitsky is on at the Visit Center of “Kola Expeditions” till May 15. We already wrote about Anna Mikhailova but are presenting Dimitry Novitsky for the first time.
Dimitry is a member of the Russian Union of Artists and a chairman of the Murmansk Section of this Union. He is a professional participan of the snow and ice sculpture festivals, including those in Finland, Norway, and Sweden. Lives and works in Murmansk.
Here are some examples of his work from the Kola Expeditions Visitor Center:
