This Village In Siberia Is The Coldest Place (-62°C) In The World & Photos Are Breathtaking

Is winter your favorite season?

Well, then you’ll certainly love this village in Siberia. Either that or you’ll start hating winter after this. Whatever your thoughts, you have to admit that it truly looks the most magical place on Earth. (Yes even more magical than Disney land.)

While the frozen Niagara was breathtakingly beautiful, this one just takes the cake.  It is said that the village’s temperature dips even below -68°C (-90°F). We are not sure though as the electronic thermometer stopped working after -62°C (-80°F).
