      That is awesome pakarang. Hard post to follow! …but I said in the Nordstjernen trip report thread that I would post more photos taken in the Russian coal mining settlement of Barentsburg here, as well as in the Svalbard thread. So hope it will be a tiny bit interesting!

      This recent visit (August 2012) is my second, the previous being in 1999. My general impression is that the place seems more run-down, although that is perhaps strange given that there have been some obvious renovations to some buildings in the intervening years, as well as such work currently in progress.




      Here is a derelict building which one passes going up the wooden steps from the port.

            It was difficult to tell if some buildings were still in use, or simply in a dilapidated state.

            Other aspects of Barentsburg coming soon in “This is Svalbard”…

              Fascinating buildings, and fascinating to see the decay of abandoned buildings... my favorite subject perhaps. At least right now.

                  An abandoned school in Sarnes, near Honningsvåg, Norway.

                  In my account of the “Taste the King Crab excursion” to Sarnes during Nordstjernen’s last voyage, (starting in post#83 of the Honningsvåg thread), I mentioned I would have a couple of photos more appropriately posted here. They are of an abandoned school building. Apparently it was a boarding school. It’s probably been empty for many years. I imagine it might date from the 1950’s but have no specific information.

                    While the crab was prepared for serving there was some free time to take a walk, and I continued on towards the school which I had noticed from the bus earlier. Just as I had taken these photos and was about to cross the road to get closer, a car drew up and parked right outside the building. My immediate impression was of some official viewing of the place, rather than someone merely interested in taking photos as I was. So I was hesitant to explore further, and in any case it was already time to return to the Sami tent and our crab feast.

                      Wish I'd been listening a little more when Brother in Law was telling us about this when we came past it last year! What I do know is that it's the old Skoleinternatet (Boarding School) at Sarnes. I do also know that it's listed on the www.ghosthunters.no site as somewhere said to be haunted. I did check in Hanssen's history of Nordkapp, but couldn't find detail at a quick scan.

                      If you look at http://skuvla.info/skolehist/ingunn-n.htm that talks about Repvåg school being shut in 1957 and a new, big Boarding school being opened in Sarnes. This also says that whilst everyone called it Sarnes internatet, its official name was Solvang internatskole. This article is actually all about the 'last Sami speaking children in Nordkapp' and has some fascinating reminiscences including the uproar amongst the parents when the kids were brought across Magerøya in a 54 ft Fishing Boat instead of something bigger. Doesn't say when it closed though.

                      Hope someone can enlighten us both - otherwise I'll report back after discussing with the Oracle in the summer!
                      Cheers,

                      Mark.

                        Terrific information, PoloUK! Thank you very much.
                        …but of course I’ll expect even more from you next summer –maybe even a drive-by or even photos to show how much is still standing!

                          SO great seeing the place again... as I'm sure you remember, in my 2010 Summer holiday report: Trondheim - North Cape - Trondheim, page 5, I also visit that very same place..... and it is very interesting to compare the images.

                          The place has ...how do you say it.... weathered (?) so much the past two years.... this is to me extremely fascinating! But you already knew that, didn't you?

                            I’ve been so excited waiting to get your reaction pakarang! On the “haunted” list, so scary film location definitely! But not for long by looks of things, with one part of the roof gone. Such a deterioration in two years, and I do hope PoloUK will keep us updated next summer.
