Yakut realm of permafrost
• Yakutian permafrost kingdom
"On Saturday in the permafrost, and the remains of mammoths do not want to see? We got close to the city museum is "- privetstovali me to one of the weekday counterparts. In my head instantly drew a sad picture of small-town local history museum with stuffed animals and fragments of bones of thick glass. On the other hand, the only alternative was a vodka museum with the steak, but I had already seen.
In general, we have come to some sort of grief in 30 kilometers from Yakutsk, jumped over puddles of mud to the entrance, paid the 400 rubles, opened the regular office plastic door and ... found themselves in the mirror with a temperature of minus 14. Expectations were not fulfilled at all hundred: that would be cool, it became clear in the first second.
The Museum begins magically: vodka from ice pile of steak. This is perhaps the best Yakut tradition.
Then go through the empty icy caves.
The Throne Room of the local Santa Claus. I forgot the name. On the throne - bearskin.
Next Chamber have our Santa Claus. Which of Ustyug. Bosses visited by every December.
In a sleigh ride, but almost a year to pick up accumulated.
On the contrary - a secular reception.
The usual office desk.
Above him president. As a living.
Even an aquarium with fish.
The side slide is found near it turns out is not a nursery.
We turned the corner: a mini-museum with a mammoth parts: bones, teeth. And you are no thick glasses and angry grandmothers-keepers. Touch, poke, twirl, gnaw.
Ice figurines everywhere - the result of an annual competition of masters from all over Siberia and the Far East. These, for example, were made in three hours.
And these was given for two days.
Room is quite formal registrations. Newlyweds are cold, but do not give up.
Sometimes quite unexpected exhibits across.
Ice creativity is not limited to industrial design and the popular north-eastern motives. Here you can find and sphinxes.
And the woman armless.
Neptune again. However, wild tourists had already broken his trident.
Breaking, by the way, is not recommended.
Appeal to visitors - it's practically a separate exhibit.
But on the tree of wishes coin sculpt just necessary.
If a coin from the first stick, the desire will come true type. Well, we do not spend: breathed on a coin 30 seconds, stuck as the hon.
More interesting to look at the walls and ceilings.
The ice and frost hide columns for music.
to wander a little cold aisles.
And exit from the realm of permafrost knead usual Yakut dirt. By the way, "the realm of permafrost" - not the result of my love for skulosvodyaschim dies, and it is quite a formal place name.
Spring mud in Yakutsk - the phenomenon is so massive that it deserves a separate story.
