Coldest Markets in the World: Russian Polar Circle Markets

Posted on February 28, 2011 by team


Salekhard is the only town located right on the polar circle. In February the temperature is about -40C. Not caring about such weather condition local markets are working at a full swing.

In the plane it is warm yet.

But snow and cold are waiting.

There is no one around within kilometres, only snow, taiga and Northern slopes.

Reindeer breeders feel comfortable in their huts right near a hotel.

One can choose between a hotel and a tent of skins.

Master of the chum (that’s how these tents of skins are called).

Making tea inside.

The kid doesn’t feel cold, he’s absolutely ok with the temperature.

Polar night has come.
