Elderly woman walks by a half-abandoned housing block in Teriberka, once a vibrant fishing and farming community after WWII. Teriberka's population shrunk from about 14,000 at its height to just more than 1,000 today after the fishing industry collapsed, the town's administrative status was lowered and people moved south to seek work.
Today, Teriberka is again in the spot-light with the construction of a base there for the landing of the a gas pipeline from the world's largest know natural gas field.
