We've got tons of images & videos!
The Letter from Siberia is a great documentary about my region called Republic of Sakha-Yakutia. Created and released by Dr. Chris Marker in 1957. A long time ago, indeed. Though I noted no big difference in terms of the way of life and culture heritage.
P.S. The link to the video was shared by a UK-based website visitor named Cherry. Thank you, Cherry!

I love visiting Yakutsk Mammoth Museum located in the mordern building of North-Eastern Federal University (formerly known as Yakutsk State University).
It occupies pretty small premises, but full of bones and samples right from the Ice Age. Most of all, I like to be in the lab of the mammoth museum. The entrance to that rooms is very restricted, but I was lucky to get inside.
Take a look at photos of the museum and the remains of the ancient Ice Age beasts discovered in the Arctic permafrost in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), Russia’s Siberia. If you are a big fan of paleontology, you would like them for sure.
Today we had minus 45 degree Centigrade and the Orthodox Church’s Epiphany holiday (wiki). Well, it is the day, when Orthodox priest bless the river waters and it became sacred. It is believed, when people sink in the blessed waters, they clear themselves from sins.
Irrespective of the cold weathers, believers or wanna-be believers come to the ice swimming pool and sink three times into the cold water of the Lena River. Looks chilly and exciting, though all action takes place inside the heated tent.
See 22 photographs taken in Yakutsk, Russia’s Siberia, on the Day of Epiphany. Enjoy and come one day to try it! Usually, it happens on every January 19th or a day before like today.
Andrey Chikachev is one of the most successfull fine artists in the Republic of Sakha-Yakutia. He’s prominent for his paintings depicting the daily life in Yakutian villages and portraiting expressive people.
He was born in 1967. A member of the Russian Union of Artists. Graduated from Yakutsk Fine Arts College (1988), Pr. S. Litvinov’s workshop at the Far Eastern Arts Institute (1994). Exhibited his works within Russia and partly abroad.
In other words, enjoy Andrey Chikachev’s art works. Pictures were taken by Ajar Varlamov during yesterday’s personal exhibit grand opening.
A funny Russian TV Show about the exotic Siberian cuisine… if to be more precise, about the national food of Republic of Sakha-Yakutia, Russia.
It’s in Russian, though you can understand everything. Don’t pay attention to what Yaz’ is telling, as no one is listening to him. It’s more about images and action.
The TV program was shot in Yakutsk, Russia. In December 2012.
What happens, when two men fell in love with one pretty woman. They start fighting. At least, it should be this way.
The same happens among Yakutian horse males. They are real machos. Animals fight furiously!
