The Snow Village in Kirovsk is a museum, made completely out of snow and ice! It was included in the Russian Book of Records as the biggest structure made of snow. You will surely enjoy an elaborated indoor snow/ice maze and an outdoor snow sculpture exhibition. The indoor section consists of an endless corridor, halls and a gallery of snow carvings on the walls. Needless to say, It is very impressive considering the fact that they have to rebuild the whole building from scratch every year during winter! Ice furniture, sculptures and even a castle you can find there as well. During your visit, you'll got a chance to see an artist working on an ice sculpture: sawing the ice, measuring, and polishing the edges.
