Coldest Place in the world is Oymyakon in Russia

The coldest inhabited place on Earth is a small village in the Siberian tundra called Oymyakon where temperatures have been recorded as low as -90 degrees Fahrenheit.

Average winter temperatures hang around -58 degrees Fahrenheit in Oymyakon and only about 500 people brave the cold to call the town home.

Here the residents feed mainly on meat as farm produce are unable to withstand the fiercely cold weather.Even the dogs get frozen.

People spend more time indoors and less time outside because , apart from the cold there's just about 3 hours of light outdoors during winter and the streets are mainly empty .

Even the saliva in the mouth freezes into needles that pierce the mouth!
