World’s Coldest Inhabited Place Oymyakon (-71°C =-96°F) is in Siberia

Published on September 22, 2017 by techtica

Positioned deep in Siberia, the village of Oymyakon Known as the ‘Pole of Cold’, holds the distinction of being the coldest permanently inhabited place on Earth. Just a few hundred miles from the Arctic Circle, it’s utterly dark – for up to 21 hours a day during the winter, and the temperature averages -72,4 Fahrenheit degrees (-58C). That’s balmy compared to one February in 1933, when Oymyakon earned its title as the coldest place on Earth when the mercury plunged to -96,16 Fahrenheit degrees (-71,2C).
