Maybe it’s because it’s freezing in Toronto and I’m trying to find a place that could possibly be even colder. Or maybe it’s because I know very little about North-east Russia and every new discovery makes me feel like an explorer. Whatever the reason, I am obsessed with a Siberian region called Yakutya and it’s capital, the coldest inhabitable city in the world—Yakutsk. It’s the land known for its incredible natural resources, like diamonds and a rich native culture. Lots of info here.
