Norway: Longyearbyen

Today I received another cover I sent to myself. Its from Longyearbyen. Longyearbyen is the largest settlement and the administrative center of Svalbard, Norway. As of 2008, the town had a population of 2,040. Longyearbyen is located in the valley of Longyeardalen and on the shore of Adventfjorden, a bay of Isfjorden located on the west coast of Spitsbergen. It is the world's northernmost settlement of any kind with greater than 1,000 permanent residents.
