Where is the coldest winter in Russia


Many travelers, oddly enough, do not like heat and sun, but snow and frost and are looking for impressions from visiting northern places. What is it like for local residents of the coldest regions of Russia in settlements with the coldest winter? In this post, we will tell you where the coldest winter in Russia is.

Oymyakon - the pole of cold

The coldest winter in Russia is in the village of Oymyakon, which is located in the east of Yakutia, where about 500 people live. Despite the low temperatures in winter, there is a warm spring in the village that does not freeze even in the most severe frosts. The village was named in his honor — Oymyakon translates as "ice-free water". The residents of Oymyakon managed to record a mark of -71°C, and although this has not been officially confirmed, this settlement is considered one of the coldest places in Russia, as the average winter temperature here is -41 °C.


Verkhoyansk is considered the coldest city on the planet. It is located 650 km from Yakutsk. The harsh climate and low rainfall have led to the fact that only about 1,500 people live in the city. The lowest confirmed temperature is -67.8°C. The average winter temperature in Verkhoyansk is -40°C. Summers in Verkhoyansk are warm, dry and short.


Yakutsk is one of the coldest cities in Russia, yet it is home to about 250,000 people. The average annual air temperature is -10°C, in winter up to -40°C. The lowest recorded temperature is -64°C. For residents of the city, this temperature has already become familiar, which does not prevent the city from being an industrial center for the extraction of natural resources.
