Pink Sofa in Pyramiden Ghost Town

When walking around Pyramiden, a former Russian coal-mining town on Svalbard halfway between Norway and the North Pole, we came across this pink sofa in the old school building. Abandoned 20 years ago and now a ghost town, its crumbling buildings are slowly being taken back by nature.
