Say ‘yes’ to Yakutsk!
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. Whatever the reason, I've been on the hunt for more info about a Siberian region called Yakutya and its 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. (photo credits: Bolot Bootur)
