About School

On behalf of the Northern Arctic Federal University we are pleased to announce the Barents Summer School on Clean Energy and Climate which will be held in 1-6 June, 2019 in Arkhangelsk.

Arkhangelsk region is located in northern European Russia on the shore of the White Sea. It includes the Arctic archipelagos of Franz Josef Land and Novaya Zemlya. The city of Arkhangelsk was founded in 1584. It has a population of about 350 thousand people and is the administrative center of the region. It is a historic seaport city which has interesting activities to offer and places to visit. It lies on both banks of the Northern Dvina River near its exit into the White Sea. The city stretches for about 40 km (25 miles). Peter the Great contributed immensely to the development of Arkhangelsk as a center of sea and river navigation and shipbuilding. In 1693 he founded the first shipyard on Solombala island where the first ship “Saint Paul” was launched in 1694.

In commemoration to this outstanding contribution, monument to Peter the Great was erected in 1911 on the Northern Dvina Embankment. The Arkhangelsk region is called the White Nights Land. From the middle of May and almost to the end of July to the north of Polar Circle the sun never disappears behind the horizon. It is regarded as a mysterious phenomenon that attracts visitors and adds to a special atmosphere of the city. Nowadays Arkhangelsk is an administrative, business and cultural center of the Arkhangelsk region. Historical monuments, museums and beauty of its landscapes attract lots of tourists from Russian cities and from abroad annually. More information:
