A city where there is no sun 5 months of the year
The inhabitants of the Norwegian town of Rjukan is valid from September to March - 5 months - they do not see the sun.
It is not just about the physical condition of the person, but also the moral - the number of people in a depression in the winter increases to incredible sizes.
All the fault of a bad location of the town - in a valley, surrounded by mountains on all sides.
But in 1913, the founder of Rjukan - Samu Eide came up a little bit crazy idea: put a mirror on the top of mountains.
But at the beginning of the last century it is the crank was pretty difficult, so the experiment was not a success.
Again, this idea was mentioned in 2005 by the artist and resident of the dark city, Martin Andersen.
So with the help of artful manipulation and 5 million Norwegian kroner (37 million rubles) three mirrors were installed in 2013.
The light from them was sent to the city's main square. Mood and well-being of local people improved immediately.
And the city poured flow of tourists, who are now able to not only go skiing and snowboarding, but also look at the strange mirror.
