About Yakutia

The Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) is the largest region of Russia. However, its population is below 1 million, that makes the region one of the least dense populated. About 40% of Sakha lies above the Arctic circle and all of it is covered by permafrost which greatly influences the region’s ecology and limits forests in the southern region.

Yakutia is known for its climate extremes. Some of the lowest natural temperatures ever recorded have been here. It is usual that lowest temperatures reach —50 °C.

After the discoveries of diamond and gold deposits the industrial development of the Republic of Sakha has reached its peak. Nowadays Yakutia holds a high potential of natural resource availability.

Local time. Yakutsk is located in UTC+9.

Currency. Local currency is Russian ruble (RUR). Exchange rate is around 60 RUR for 1 USD. Major credit cards are accepted. ATM machines are available at the leaders hotel and throughout the city.

Electricity. Russia operates on 220 volts, 50 cycles. Power sockets are of Type C and Type F.
