The town of Longyearbyen is the largest settlement on the island of Spitsbergen.
Although it’s ice cold and often dark for a long time, Longyearbyen is a bustling place.
There is an international airport, a hospital, a museum, a camping and even a university where arctic studies can be monitored.
In the past the residents hunted on whales and worked in the mines, but today there are mainly scientists and tourists to visit the place. The vaunted YouTube channel Veritasium decided to visit the village and made a wonderful video.
