Piece of Trivia: if you’ve played “Risk”, you’re sure to know Yakutsk. This city is located between Siberia and the Kamchatka Penninsula. What you might not know even if you played is that this is the coldest city in the world.
The place is located on the bay of the Yana River, whose waters freezes from September and don’t come back to normal until May. In January, the highest temperature is -35 degrees Celsius.
In Yakutsk live over 200,000 people, and the main source of income comes from the mining industry.
