Одна из туристических точек Свальбарда. На переднем плане ловушка для медведей . Так давным давно приманивали медведя. Там наверху висят тюлени . Ну короче вы понимаете. Слева есть маленькие ящички- это тоже ловушки, но там вообще кровожадно, не буду рассказывать. Радует что сейчас популяция белого медведя на архипелаге больше чем человеческая ) и охота на медведя запрещена. #spitsbergen #longyearbyen #nothernlights #svalbard #basecampexplorer
