About Murmansk

Murmansk (Russian: Му́рманск) is a port city and the administrative center of Murmansk Oblast in the far northwest part of Russia.

It is in the north of the rounded Kola Peninsula which covers most of the oblast (semi-autonomous region). The city is 108 km from the border with Norway and 182 km from the Finnish border. The city is named for the Murman Coast, an archaic term in Russian for Norway.
