This video was shot 3 weeks before Russia invaded Ukraine. I do NOT support this unprovoked war, and my thoughts go out to our friends in Ukraine. We love you.
Welcome to YAKUTSK, RUSSIA (SIBERIA) – AKA the WORLD’S COLDEST CITY. More than 300,000 people live here, where winter temperatures (like right now) reach as low as -55 Celsius.
I went to Yakutsk a few weeks ago with my good friend Ammar from @Yes Theory. The city is so remote that we had to take a 9-hour domestic flight from Moscow to get there.
As soon as we arrived in this cold winter wonderland, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Completely frozen trees, frozen pipelines, frozen cars… frozen everything!! But underneath the layers of jackets are extremely friendly faces and warm smiles. And that’s what I came here to learn about – humanity. Who are the Yakutian people? How do they survive these brutally cold winters?
This video takes you on a 4-day journey through the world’s coldest city – Yakutsk. I think you will be quite surprised to discover that Yakutsk is actually a normal city, just like anywhere else. It just happens to be extremely cold!
Thank you to my local friends Maria #1 and Maria #2 (from @Life in Yakutia) for showing me around! And thanks to Andrey for the awesome work behind the camera. And thank YOU so much for watching — this video is really special to me and many long hours of work have gone into it.
Have a great Sunday and I’ll see you next week.
