With its icy temperature, lip-smacking cuisine and breathtaking landscape, Serbia is among the hot favourite winter destinations. As per The Tatva, Serbia's temperature has dropped down to -60 degrees Celsius. The digital media platform shared a series of postcard-worthy moments, showing the winter situation in “one of the coldest places on earth.” Sharing the picture, the platform wrote, “Arctic weather enfolded swathes of Russia on Tuesday, with temperatures in the wilds of Siberia falling to minus 58 degrees Celsius (minus 72 degrees Fahrenheit). Yakutsk, one of the world's coldest cities which lies some 5,000 km (3,100 miles) east of Moscow, was covered in freezing clouds and fog, drone footage showed.”
