Vernadsky bar Reviews
remote but great vodka Feb 15, 2007
So remote, you always have fun! Especially, when bra's are donated at the bar for free Vodka:-)
Vernadsky is the Ukraine base on Antarctica. The base was formerly owned by the British, but they had to sell it because the had too many bases on Antarctica. In the 1980's the 'hole' in the O-zone layer was discovered at this base.
The Ukraine base is open for visitors. A tour round de base is fun. Watching all the research rooms with photos of families (or pin-ups).
It is remote and in winter time it is very cold and dark all day as well.
Best thing is the Vernadsky bar! They make their own vodka in bath tubs and sell it in the bar!
Only women can get a free Vodka if the donate their bra, string etc. The trofees will get a place at the bar.
A great place, but don't get too drunk, you still have to make the ride back in the zodiac! (and the water is freezing cold)
Part of the Antarctica - sailing, almost like Shackleton did travel blog
