Ice Sculpture Festival Ice Fantasy - 2020 in Saint Petersburg
January 29, 2020 14:56

A fairytale ice town has reappeared at the walls of the famous Peter and Paul Fortress of Saint Petersburg. Fantasy ice animals inhabiting it are waiting for you in a special refrigerator tent to enjoy this winter together!
230 tons of crystal ice has been turned by sculptors into a fairy tale at the ICE FANTASY-2020 Ice Sculpture Festival. This year, the visitors will find here an entire ice planet inhabited by various representatives of ice flora and fauna.

Given the vagaries of winter weather, the organizers have placed the exposition in a special tent where the microclimate suitable for ice sculptures is constantly maintained. The festival will be open to visitors in any weather until February 9, 2020!

Traditionally, most enthusiastic professional sculptors, creators of amazing works of art gathered in the fridge-tent installed at the Naryshkin Bastion of the Peter and Paul Fortress.

Ice masterpieces are mesmerizingly beautiful, but not durable, unfortunately. So only people who are truly passionate about their work can invest their talent in working with such fragile and tricky material as ice.

Every year, the best ice-masters from Russia and around the world take part in creating the festival’s exposition. These are winners of various international competitions held in Belgium, France, Germany, China and other countries.

As tradition goes, every year the organizers of the ICE FANTASY festival take up a new subject that defines the general direction for sculptors.

This time, ice fantasy takes visitors to an incredible realm that leaves indifferent neither adults nor children, because animals are the heroes of the festival this year.

“LIVING PLANET” is the theme of ICE FANTASY-2020!

Life-size ice giraffes, a reindeer, a graceful snow leopard, a terrifying giant tarantula, charming St. Petersburg cats, which have long become the symbol of the city and many other fantastic characters, are waiting for you under the roof of the refrigerator tent!
In the very center of the festival there is an entire underwater kingdom and a Crystal Castle of the Little Mermaid. The Crystal Castle surrounded by ice sea inhabitants has become the highest sculpture of the festival ICE FANTASY-2020!

Each visitor can make a wish and take pictures on the local ice throne decorated with ice rats as a lucky symbol of 2020.

According to tradition, children will have a chance to find funny mice hidden in unexpected places, then name their number and get a prize.
When: December 21, 2019 - February 9, 2020
