If your city has “yak” in its name, then you probably know you’re not in for a good (or warm) time. Yakutsk is the capital city of the Sakha Republic, Russia, located only 280 miles south of the Arctic Circle. That means that every single person that lives in Yakutsk has to survive subarctic temperatures. Yakutsk has been recorded as the coldest city on earth… and has officially been recorded in my travel journal as the last place I would ever want to go. Although the cold city is beautiful, its…
