The Coldest Place In the World

Posted on January 12, 2014 by team

Are you complaining of cold? Try to visit Oimyakon settlement where January temperature may remain below  50ºС for weeks. The lowest temperature in the history of this place was equal to …-71,2ºС!

Oimyakon is inhabited by 500 people, in the 20-30s of the previous year it was the place where deer breeders used to stay for some time. In the Soviet years there was made an attempt to take control over the nomads, who were considered wild, the settlement appeared as a result of that attempt.

Oimyakon – the pole of cold.
