Rene Matthes, Wiesenstr. 3, 09328, Lunzenau, Germany.
Consists of a cluster of Islands between the Arctic Ocean, Barents, sea and The Norwegian Sea. It is midway between Norway and The North Pole. Despite being a stunning winter wonderland, the terrain as well as the wildlife are unpredictable. If you aren’t a true survivalist Svalbard may not be where you want to vacation or visit. This place is outrageously cold, and modern technology (i.e. cellphones) will not be much use to you in this country. The main Island is called Spitsbergen which breaks down into five settlements:
1.) Barentsburg pop. 400
2.) Hornsund (a polish research station) pop 10 in winter 20-30 in summer
3.) Longyearbyen (capital) Pop. 1,800
4.) Ny-Alesund Pop. 100
5.) Sveagruva- Pop. 210
