The church in Dudinka, ironically situated on the same square as Lenin's statue. Dudinka is a port town of about 25,000 people on the Yenesei River in the northwestern part of Asian Russia, about 300 km (190 miles) north of the Arctic Circle. It is a busy port shipping out metals (nickel, palladium, platinum, and copper) and coal mined in Norilsk, about 90 km away. An icebreaker keeps the port, part of which is visible in the background, open year round.
