An interesting photo essay from Russia's mining town of Prokopyevsk awaits you after the jump.
Looking at the pictures, it seems that the city became extinct, but when it's -42 ° C it's not so easy to have a walk.
If you breathe deeply, you will really feel the pain in the lungs, which will freeze as well as your nose.
Imagine, if you open the window for 5 minutes, you won’t be able to close it because it will be covered with ice.
You will be able start a car only if it is parked in a heated garage and even this doesn’t help every time...
In many complex building they use coal. How do you like such living conditions?
A huge respect to a photographer who suffered a lot from the cold while doing this report, because after 15 minutes on the street, the camera freezes from inside and it stops working.
Now look at photos of the city and its industrial facilities.

If it gets under 70F (21C) here a lot of people won't go outside.

Hello everyone! I was reading the post and was laughing my *** out! I WAS BORN in Prokopyevsk and lived there for 14 years till we moved to California in 2003. Those people who post this don't know anything, they just copied pictures from someone. This is normal city like most cities in Russia, yes the winter is cold there but the summer is hot about 30 degrees Celsius.The population in there is 250 000 people, and Prokopyevsk is #1 in making coal in Russia so this is not a ghost town! This city has theaters, schools, parks, supermarkets, stadiums, buses, light trail, taxis, skate parks, churches, cathedrals, ice skating, good roads, businesses, stores, and much more, they just pictured the bad side of the city. I actually like and miss this city and have a lot of friend and relatives who live there, so don't be fooled by the cheap journalists.Good luck!
