The Inhabitated Coldest Places On The Planet

"It´s cold like in Siberia" is one of the popular sayings linked to these cold months. And as it seems it is not far from truth. Some places experience winter temperatures that drop down to -50C. Feeling cold? Not the locals of Oymyakon in Russia, apparently. Children are excused from going to school only when it hits – 52.  People have their toilets outside, which might be quite challenging on such days. The lowest temperature recorded was -71,2C in 1933. This is not the only place where winters are so tough.
