Verkhoyansk Tour

Cossacks founded an ostrog in 1638, 90 kilometres (56 mi) southwest of the modern town. The ostrog's name "Verkhoyansky", roughly translating from Russian as the town on the Upper Yana, derived from its geographical location on the upper reaches of the Yana River. In 1775, it was moved to the left bank of the Yana River to facilitate tax collection. It was granted town status in 1817. Between the 1860s and 1917, the town was a place of political exile.

Verkhoyansk holds the Guinness world record for the greatest temperature range on Earth: 105 °C (189 °F).
