This is YAKUTSK in Siberia. Is it really that cold, you ask?
“No other place on the planet experiences the temperature extreme found here: in winter, the temperatures regularly fall to minus 40° (the coldest temperature recorded was -64°C) and in summer often reaches temperatures above 30°C”
Yakutsk has a population of 270,000 people (!).
