This photo by Aleksandr Romanov captures children playing together outside of the Arctic Circle, where they live in Tazov Peninsula, Russia. Due to the severe climate, not many people live in this area of the world. There are some brave enough to live here still though, despite the cold. Most of those who live in or around the Arctic Circle live in the Russian part of it.

The Arctic Circle is about 10,975 miles long and runs through the Arctic Ocean, North Asia, and parts of Northern America and Greenland. The land of the Arctic Circle is split into 8 parts belonging to Norway, Russia, Finland, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, the US, and Iceland
