Coldest City in The World

Politics

The Russian valley of Oymyakon is the coldest permanently inhabited settlement in the world, with the average temperature for January standing at -50C.

The village is located around 750 metres above sea level and the length of a day varies from 3 hours in December to 21 hours in the summer. But locals are hardened to the weather and unlike in other countries - where a flurry of snow brings things grinding to a halt - Oymyakon's solitary school only shuts if temperatures fall below -52C.
