Tiksi

Tiksi is an urban locality and the administrative center of Bulunsky District in the Sakha Republic, Russia, located on the Arctic Ocean coast. Population: Despite its rapid population decline, it remains the most northerly settlement with a population of over 5,000.EtymologyThe name of the settlement means "a moorage place" in the Sakha language.GeographyTiksi is located on the shore of the Buor-Khaya Gulf of the Laptev Sea, south of the river delta of the Lena River, and serves as one of the principal ports for accessing the Laptev Sea.HistoryIn August 1901, Russian Arctic ship Zarya headed across the Laptev Sea, searching for the legendary Sannikov Land (Zemlya Sannikova) but was soon blocked by floating drift ice in the New Siberian Islands. During 1902, the attempts to reach Sannikov Land continued while Zarya was trapped in fast ice. Leaving the ship, Russian Arctic explorer Baron Eduard Toll and three companions vanished forever in November 1902 while traveling away from Bennett Island towards the south on loose ice floes. Zarya was finally moored close to Brusneva Island in the Tiksi Bay, never to leave the place again. The remaining members of the expedition returned to St. Petersburg, while Captain Fyodor Matisen went to Yakutsk.
