Oymyakon - The Coldest Permanently Inhabited Place On Earth
Oymyakon/Ojmjakon/Oimyakon (map) is the coldest permanently inhabited place on earth. Located in Siberia, the lowest recorded temperature here is -71.2 degrees Celsius. According to Wikipedia this is the lowest officially recorded temperature in the northern hemisphere.
The village has a population of around 800 and is located 690 meters above sea level and lies in a valley between two mountain ranges (the reason for the low temperatures). The name Oymyakon means "non-freezing water" because of the natural hot spring close to the village.
There aren't a great deal of images and videos on the net (here's an account of a trip in 1996) but here are two video reports, one from Sky News and the other from RTL.
It's interesting how the school children only get a day off when the temperature drops below -52C yet over here a light dusting can cause widespread disruption. And even though the RTL report is not in English check out the shirt that breaks in two.
