Travel to Yakutia gives unforgettable impressions for anyone who discover this Russian region!
Yakutia or Sakha Republic is the largest subject of the Russian Federation. With its 3,083,523 sq-km it is only slightly smaller than India. However, its population is fewer than one million. It is easily understandable when you consider the extreme climate. Let us remind that over a third of Yakutia lies above the Arctic Circle. The Yakuts, the main ethnic group, already lived there long before the arrival of Russian Cossacks in the 17th century. They were able to adapt to this land that seemed so hostile at first sight. It is a mountainous area; the landscape is predominantly taiga forest and toundra. The soil, - which is almost entirely covered by permafrost (frozen soil) - conceals important richness such as gold and diamond fields. That would make anyone forget about the harshness of winter..
