Visiting the fairy tale

Ice figures in Yakutsk can be seen everywhere - in squares, near government agencies and ordinary buildings. On Valentine's Day, an ice park was opened in the city - the largest in the Russian Far East.

For the third year in a row, the Lena River frozen in winter (and the winter in Yakutsk will be the whole of March) becomes an entertainment zone: riding quadrocycles, snowmobiles, zorbs, tubing, skating rinks, reindeer, searching for a way out of the maze.

This year in Russia is declared the Year of Literature, so 15 teams of ice masters cut out of the ice amazing sculptures based on foreign, Russian and Yakut fairy tales. Work on masterpieces architects began in November.

The organizers of the park tried to surprise the guests with the construction of various ice slides for both children and adults. Intersecting castle slide, cylindrical slide, curly slides for kids, cup slides and the main pride of the park is the 200-meter central slide! About 25 sculptors worked on their implementation.

In order not to freeze, for visitors on the territory of the town worked a cafe where you could keep warm with a cup of hot tea! And also rented a warm ice houses.


On the stage there was a concert with the participation of the stars of the Yakut stage, a game program. On this day in the park they confessed their love.
