Ice Cave Is Under Construction in the Zaryadye Park
January 30, 2018 11:37


 They have started to freeze an ice cave in the “Zaryadye” park. The construction with columns, labyrinths and arches with a total area of 350 square meters will be available all year round in the pavilion titled “The Reserved Embassy”.

The “glacier” which will make it possible to plunge into the atmosphere of the Arctic is six meters high. It is planned to open it for visitors at the end of this winter. “The construction of the ice cave consists of curved metal pipes with a total length of 15 kilometers.

About eight tons of special coolant circulates inside of them. The temperature in the cave will range from minus five to minus eight degrees Celsius” - the Chief Architect of Moscow Sergei Kuznetsov said. The author of the project and artist Aleksandr Ponomarev noted that the special equipment supplying the coolant had been placed under the “glacier”. New layers of frost are artificially frozen on the walls, ceiling and floor of the cave; later they turn into ice.

A complete ice cover will be formed in about a month and a half. It is planned to freeze about a total of 70 tons of ice during that time. Visitors will be able to touch the ice surface. The media screens that will be installed next to the cave will show documentaries about the nature of ice and scientific expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic.
