Hello friends!
My name is Asya Sofroneyeva and I’m a 16 years old girl.
I am in grade 9-th . My favorite subjects: Algebra, Biology and of course English. Outside of my school life I love to play volleyball with my friends.

Yakutsk is the capital city of the Sakha Republic, Russia, located about 450 kilometers south of the Arctic Circle. Population: 269,486.
Yakutsk is a major port on the Lena River. It is served by Yakutsk Airport as well as the smaller Magan Airport. It is a major supplier of diamonds.


Yakutsk was founded as an ostrog (fort) by Pyotr Beketov in 1632. In 1639, it became the center of a voyevodstvo. The voivode of Yakutsk quickly became the most important Russian official in the region and directed expansion to the east and south. Yakutsk did not grow into a city until the discovery of large reserves of gold and other minerals in the 1880s and 1890s. These reserves were developed extensively during industrialization under Stalin. The rapid growth of forced labor camps in Siberia was also a major factor encouraging Yakutsk's development.


With an extreme subarctic climate Yakutsk has the coldest winter temperatures for any city, though not for any inhabited place, on Earth. Average monthly temperatures range from +19 °C (66 °F) in July to −40 °C (−40 °F) in January, and only Norilsk has a lower mean annual temperature for any settlement of over 10,000. The coldest temperatures ever recorded on the planet outside Antarctica occurred in the basin of the Yana River to the northeast of Yakutsk. Although winters are long and extremely cold, summers are warm (though rather short), with daily maximum temperatures occasionally exceeding +32 °C (90 °F), making the seasonal temperature differences for the region among the greatest in the world. As the biggest city built on continuous permafrost, most houses in Yakutsk are built on concrete piles.
The climate is quite dry, with maximum precipitation occurring in the summer months, due to the intense Siberian High forming around the very cold continental air during the winter. Even during the summer, precipitation is not heavy since the moist southeasterly winds from the Pacific Ocean lose their moisture over the coastal mountains well before reaching the Lena valley.
