Murmansk June 2012

  1. June 21 2012. I am heading for the Semyonovskoe lake and Alyosha in Murmansk ( Семеновское озеро и памятник Алёша в Мурманске ) the trolleybus number 3 seemed to be a good choice and had a bus stop with the same name as the lake, Семеновское озеро.
    From the centre it was also possible to go there on foot. From the bus stop I headed counter clockwise around the lake till I saw Alyosha and then followed some paths through the forest landscape to the monument, also a woman with a Siberian husky type dog pointed for me the path direction. At the lake there was some sailing and row boat activity's and the crews seemed to enjoy their boat rides. Ducks and other birds were at the lake, several people out walking with their dogs also. From the monument it was a very good view of Murmansk and good paths to the eastern part of the lake at the main road and bus stop. Near the main road there was also a small brown house from where bathing was allowed, else several signs around the lake said swimming forbidden. At the bath house I joked with a woman coming up of the water asking about how many minus degrees it was, and she said several plus degrees when I asked about winter time she said they were always swimming.
