MURMANSK (Sputnik) — The ski resorts of the Russian northern city of Murmansk could attract Icelandic tourists, Icelandic Ambassador to Russia Berglind Asgeirsdottir said Wednesday.

"Although our country is called Iceland, what means a land of ice in English, we have very soft winters with a temperature of about zero. We do not ski a lot, so Murmansk would be a good place for those who like skiing," Asgeirsdottir told reporters.
