Teriberka Tour, Kola Peninsula

Many scenes of the famous movie Leviathan were shot in the far village of Teriberka in Murmansk region. Being shown at the screen this common village has become a symbol of the Far Russian North decay.

According to some version, its name Teriberka roots back to an older name of the Kola Peninsula – the Ter’. This village is located on the shore of Kola Peninsula in the river Teriberka mouth. The first reference to Teriberka dates back to the XVI century. At that time there appeared a Russian settlement of fishermen called landing. Some fishermen lived in dugouts. The first inhabitants were busy with animal farming, fishing and whaling.

At the beginning of the XX century there were cod and shark catching businesses and well developed cod trading.
During the Great Patriotic war the Teriberka village was far from the front line, but nevertheless it was bombed by the German aviation. Fishing was highly important for the country, so it wasn’t stopped even at the time of war. Villagers have sent hundreds of packages with food and warm clothes.

The Teriberka village has reached its peak of development after the end of the Great Patriotic War.
