Yakutsk, Yakutia, Russia, 19/08/2011.
Scenes inside the Permafrost Kingdom, an underground tourist attraction inspired by the extreme cold of Yakutia. The 150 metre deep complex of tunnels in the Russian permafrost are decorated with ice sculptures, a wolf-fur covered throne, an office complete with the coolest computer and telephone, a children's slide and other ingenious creations - all hewn from blocks of ice.
