Pyramiden is an abandonned, Soviet era Russian mining town on the island of Spitsbergen, Svalbard. When the Russians pulled out of the town in 1998, the residents left in a matter of days leaving behind almost everything in place.  It has disintegrated into the status of a ghost town since then, but there are repeated efforts to try to revive the city as a tourist attraction.  There were three people living there when we visited in October 2016 who were attempting to restore a hotel and bar.
