    Vostok Station in Antarctica is one of the coldest places on Earth. The Russian research station is where the lowest recorded temperature was taken at -89.2 degrees Celsius (-128.56 Fahrenheit). Antarctica is not only the coldest place but also the windiest and has the highest overall elevation of any continent in the world. Despite the fact that Antarctica contains 90 percent of the ice in the world, it receives almost no rainfall, making it technically a desert. However if you are talking about the coldest place with habitat then its Oymyakon, in Russia. It’s the coldest permanently inhabited settlement in the world. The lowest temperature recorded there is -71.2 degrees Celsius (-96.16 Fahrenheit).
