World's northernmost hospital, only 1300 km away from the North Pole
While the majority of places in Longyearbyen are closed on Christmas morning, the hospital doors always stay open. There, most basic health care needs can be taken care of, except for ... death. It's illegal to die in Svalbard and the reason is simple - bodies don't decompose because of the permafrost.
