Norilsk (Russian: Нори́льск nah-REEL'SK) is a large city in Taymyria. Because of its strategic importance, Norilsk is a closed city and special permission is needed for travel (which will likely be denied unless you have a really good reason). Norilsk is the second largest city above the Arctic Circle, Murmansk is the first.
If you do get permission to go to Norilsk, be aware that it is considered one of the 10 most-polluted cities on Earth, and that a substantial stay could jeopardize your health.
