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.
To give an idea of Yakutsk weather in winter, take a look at yesterday’s street photographs. Fog, cold, and frozen snow. Lamps, billboards, and deer. Road signs, traffic lights and slow vehicles.
Enjoy 10 winter street photographs from Russia’s Siberian city of Yakutsk.
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.
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!
Take a look at the photo report delivered by a blogger nicknamed Log.

This is our New Year tree on the main square called Lenin in Yakutsk, Siberia / Russia. A photo was taken at 12:10 pm.
Cold? Foggy? Looks festive? Ho ho ho, this is our winter holiday mood. That’s the coldest city on Earth!
As far as you know, Russia celebrates the Happy New Year holidays mostly. According to the Russian Orthodox Church calendar, Christmas takes place on January 7th. Actually, it’s not a big event. Worshiped by church goers only, though it is a good reason to have a day off.
So, when you see a tree, that looks more like a Christmas one, you know now, it’s the New Year tree.
Have great holidays, folks! Though I know your Christmas is already over.

So, what is it like to live in Russia’s Siberian city of Yakutsk on a day after the End of the World?
Frankly, it’s a regular winter day in December. Foggy and cold a little. In a daytime we had minus 45 degrees Centigrade. We say it’s extremely cold, when it is already below -50C. Today it was like that, so it was a regular day.
Below, see 11 winter street photographs taken in the downtown of Yakutsk, Russia. On Lenin Square. Shopping women, a group of joyful teenagers, happy young ladies… What else? Ah, yeah. Fog, fog, fog. And a sense of the extreme cold weather.
We blog about the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), the biggest & coldest region in Russia's Siberia. Also known as Yakutia. My honor to have been born and live in such a beautiful land! ~ Bolot.
