In these regions, both the north and south polar ends are extremely cold in winters. Mostly rural areas, which are deprived of sunlight for a long time, receive sunlight at a narrow angle.
10. FORT SELKIRK (CANADA) -58 °C
It used to be an active trade centre, but it is very difficult to reach here now. The best way to get to those regions is by flight. The temperatures reportedly drop to -58°C.
9. PROSPECT CREEK, ALASKA (USA) -62 °C
A small settlement in southeast Alaska. Because of the severe coldness, the locals are slowly leaving this place. The lowest recorded temperature was -62 °C.
8. SNAG, YUKON (CANADA) -63 °C
The lowest temperature recorded in this settlement, which was under the influence of the Siberian cold, was -63 °C.
7. YAKUTSK (RUSSIA) -64.4 °C
Siberian cold is famous all over the world. Therefore, it should not be very interesting that Yakutsk, in Siberia, is considered the coolest city in the world. The lowest temperature measured in this city is -64.4 °C.
6. EISMITTE (GREENLAND) 64.9 °C

4. OYMYAKON (RUSSIA) -71.2 °C
This region referred to as the coldest village in the world, is in Russia. Since it is close to the North Pole circle, although it receives sunlight for a long time in summer, the air temperature is minus degrees even in summer. In 1924, -71.2 °C was the lowest temperature in the region.
3. DENALI, ALASKA (USA) -73 °C
The lowest temperature measured at this peak, which is the highest point in North America, is -73 °C.
2. VOSTOK (ANTARCTICA) -89.2 °C
In this station, established by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in 1957, the temperature was -89.2 degrees Celsius in 1983. It was the coldest region measured until the 2010s and still is the coldest region “directly” measured today.
1. PLATEAU STATION (ANTARCTICA) -94 °C
In the 2000s, it became the coldest region of the world with -94 °C in measurements made by satellites and reported the coldest temperature measured on earth.
After these data, Vostok Station, the coldest region in the world then became second to plateau station.
