The Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) is the largest administrative and territorial subdivision in the world and accordingly, the largest part of the Russian Federation. It occupies one-fifth of the territory of Russia. It is such a large area that there could be located seven European countries: Germany, France, Austria, Italy, Finland, Greece, and Sweden.
Yakutia is called “the treasury” of Russia. According to one ancient Siberian legend: God once was flying over Yakutia with a bag of “earth treasures”. Because of the extreme cold, he had frozen his hands, and he spilled all the wealth in this country. Yakutia, indeed, is one of the richest regions in the world in terms of natural resources. It is a land of dense taiga wilderness and immense tundra zones, hundreds of thousands of large and small rivers and lakes, merciless mountain ranges and Arctic Circle regions, ancient nature, an original culture, and warm open people.
