Oymyakon, The Coldest Town on Earth

Russian town of Oymyakon is the world's coldest inhabited place. It's also cold "Pole of Cold." In February 1933, a temperature of -67.7°C, or -90°F, was recorded at the weather station there. The town even boasts the usual haunts: schools, a post office, a bank and an airport runway (though it's only open in the summer.)
