Abandoned settlement of Pyramid where the only resident is a Russian tour guide who has just a pet fox for company (23 Pics)

Welcome to the deserted Soviet settlement of Pyramid, around 800 miles from the North Pole and literally frozen in time.
This ghost town is in fact in Norway - on Spitsbergen island in the Arctic Ocean - where Russia retains rights to occupy the icy territory.
No-one has lived permanently in Pyramid since 1998 and it is now a bizarre tourist attraction offering the world's most northerly Lenin monument.
