Russian cities and towns where you can see the northern lights

Catching up with northern lights in Russia's Arctic Circle.

The northern lights appear every winter over Lake Lovozero , lost somewhere in the Kola Peninsula beyond the Arctic Circle. The Russian Saami who live on its shores tell fortunes, drawing on the Arctic sky as if it were a cup of coffee. The entire polar north of Russia watches this unusual natural phenomenon – even hunters rush to conquer the vast expanses of Yakutia, Chukotka and the Krasnoyarsk Territory, in order to glimpse the northern lights.
