Inside the amazing permafrost ice tunnels

Still Waters

The tunnels go deep inside the permafrost in Novy Port, a subterranean labyrinth that is a relic of a former age and a triumph of supreme German engineering in the most inhospitable conditions. 

In area, at 7,000 square metres, these tunnels and chambers cover a larger space than Donald Trump’s White House in Washington DC.

They are all underground, hewn out of the solid frozen ground by labourers, like Backmann, forcibly exiled here deep in the Soviet era. 

Built in the 1950s, this intriguing monument remains the world’s largest permafrost store built by manual labour.
