Russia plans a North Pole version of Rapture.

Russia is planning to build a large domed city not far from the North Pole.

‘We aim to have scientific laboratories, houses, but also parks with attractions, an Aqua complex, hotels and a cathedral. Naturally there will be schools, kindergartens, recreation zones, a hospital, and sport facilities are planned, too,’ said Rzhevskiy.

Impressive Utopian paradise? Inhospitable locale? Nicknamed ‘Wonder City’? It sounds like another Rapture waiting to happen. Except with snow.
