It reads "Oymyakon, the Pole of Cold" Village of Oymyakon, which is considered to be the coldest permanently inhabited settlement in the world, Russia - Jan 2013 *Full story: http://www.rexfeatures.com/nanolink/jpod  If you thought it was cold where you are at the moment then a visit to the Russian village of Oymyakon and city of Yatutsk might just change your mind. With the average temperature for January a blisteringly cold -50c it is no wonder Oymyakon is the coldest permanently inhabited settlement in the world. Oymyakon lies a two day drive from the city of Yakutsk, the regional capital, which has the coldest winter temperatures for any city in the world. Ironically, Oymyakon actually means "non-freezing water" due to a nearby hot spring. The village was originally a stopover for reindeer herders who would water their flocks from the thermal spring. Known as the "Pole of Cold", the coldest ever temperature recorded in Oymyakon was a mind numbing -71.2c. This is the lowest recorded temperature for any permanently inhabited location on Earth and the lowest temperature recorded in the Northern Hemisphere.
