Valyok used to be night health center

October 25, 2022

Valyok began to work in 1950 as a night health care center. This meant that the combine employees came there after work - to rest, get diet food and procedures.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Valyok was initially housed in two small wooden houses for 50 people with wards for ten people.

In 1960, a project for the clinic expansion appeared, which included the construction of five capital buildings – medical, administrative and bedroom.

The construction of the new blocks, united by a central building, went on for about 15 years, without interrupting the work of the sanatorium.

In May 1964, the first stage was accepted – a dining room, two bedroom buildings for 250 people and an ice room. In 1976, the last building with 80 beds was commissioned.

In the 1950s and 1960s, a children’s tent camp was organized in Valyouk for those schoolchildren who stayed in Norilsk for the summer. In the History Spot’s previous combination, we told that the Norilsk camp sites are the signs of the polar summer and a special phenomenon in the life of the Norilsk people.
