Coldest Cities In The World Where The Will To Survive Is Stronger Than The Winter Chill
1. Oymyakon, Russia
This village in Siberian Russia is only a few hundred kilometres away from the Arctic Circle. With a population of 500 residents, Oymyakon competes for the coldest place on Earth with another village in the same region, Verkhoyansk. The average temperature in January dips to 50 degrees Celcius. In 1933, the coldest temperature ever recorded for the region was 67.7 degrees Celcius. The cold is so severe that residents park their cars in heated garages to prevent the engines from getting conked off. They don't wear spectacles as the frames freeze to their face. As farming is impossible, the locals eat a diet of reindeer or fish and even consume ice cubes of horse blood along with macaroni to keep warm.
