Scale inscription will soon shine again over the polar capital. Citizens are used to see inscription of big letters "Murmansk - Hero City" on the roof of a house on the Papanina street, which has become one of the trademarks of the capital of the Polar region. Unfortunately, for almost thirty years, the construction has done its time: metal rusted, problems with the roof where it was installed appeared, and pedestrians even started to keep away from the dangerous five-storeyed building – any minute now one of the letters will fall off and plonk on the pavement. The city authorities have decided to update the shaky sign, and the letters were removed.
