Same date, same place… Again this year Novosibirsk is welcoming the Annual Festival of Snow Figures, as usual in Pervomaisky Park right in the city center.

Here’s the post about the event a year ago: http://asknovosibirsk.com/answer/annual-festival-of-snow-figures-in-novosibirsk/#more-494

This year the main topic of the festival is the Olympics, of course, which is held in Russia, city of Sochi.

Others are, as always, not always comprehensible, but all of them are beautiful, sparkling on the sun and covered with fresh snow.

As usual, many figures have been created by experienced artists, while some have been made by schoolchildren specializing in arts and crafts.

If you are in Novosibirsk right now, be sure to go and look at them. Normally the figures are presented to the public for a couple of weeks. After that they lose their initial form and are destroyed.
