Barentsburg is the only inhabited Russian mining settlement in Spitsbergen. It is located in the east of Gronfjorden, 55 km south of Longyearbyen. As there are no roads between the villages, you can only get there by snow scooter, helicopter or ship.
The name of the village comes from a Dutch sailor Willem Barents, who was the first to discover Svalbard.
