Silversea Expedition Cruises A Cape Zhelaniya, Novo Zemlya

The Russian word, Zhelaniya means 'wish,' and leads one to wonder why such a poetic name was ascribed to this remote headland on the northern end of Severny Island, part of Novaya Zemlya in the Russian Federation. The cape is an important geographical landmark although quite a desolate and exposed location, especially in the bitter Arctic winters. It is the physical point of reference that marks the boundary between the Barents Sea and the Kara Sea. View more

There was a Soviet Arctic station here during World War II, and an experimental station of sorts during the Cold War, that later functioned as a weather station. Starting in 2005, an automated meteorological station has been in operation on Cape Zhelaniya that tracks the area’s extreme weather patterns.
