By the way, Antarctica is the coldest continent in the world, but it is not inhabited by humans, but only a few scientists live there for research purposes.
So Antarctica can be called the coldest place in the world, but which city in the world experiences the most cold?
So this honor goes to the city of Yakutsk in Russia which is located in the region of Siberia.
It is one of the coldest places in the world and is home to around 3.5 million people, most of whom work for a company that owns a diamond mine there.
It is the capital of the Sakha Province, located in the northern corner of Russia.
In winter, the temperature of this city reaches minus 60 degrees Celsius.
Some residents claim that the temperature drops even lower than this, but this cannot be confirmed as the thermometers do not work after minus 63 degrees Celsius.
In summer, the average temperature here reaches 29 degrees Celsius, but in winter it usually remains below minus 30 degrees, and the lowest temperature recorded there was in February 1987, minus 65 degrees Celsius.
The Lena River that flows there freezes in winter.
The city is 8468 km from the Russian capital Moscow and is connected to the country by the Lena highway.
It is so cold here that even digging for a building or a grave proves to be very difficult, while even planes cannot pass through here or crops cannot be grown in cold weather.
There are several theatres, museums and old houses, while an annual fair is held in June every year.
Most of the houses here are built on stilts that are set very deep and the region is rich in natural resources including gold and diamonds.
Snow often forms around the eyes when walking outside the house.
So Yakutsk is the coldest city in the world, but the weather is even colder in the village or town of Oymyakon in Siberia.
500 people live in this place and in 1924 the temperature was recorded as minus 71.2 Celsius.
Interestingly, Yakutsk and Oymyakon are not close to each other, but there is a distance of 577 miles between them.
So why is it so cold in these two places? And why are people living in such a harsh environment?
According to experts, the region of Siberia is very wide and high above the sea level, and due to the combination of these two, it is very cold there.
As for Yakutsk and Oymyakon, these two places are located in valleys and are surrounded by high hills.
Because of this, heavy cold air gets ‘trapped’ near the valley surface, resulting in record low temperatures.
So why do people live there despite such a harsh climate?
According to experts, the people who live there are proud of where they live and how they successfully maintain routines even in such harsh places.
