FROZEN FAIRY TALE of the HERMITAGE GARDENS

Oh, were you expecting some words? Ok then. This is the ice sculpture garden that went up over winter holidays in Moscow’s Hermitage Garden, which is literally across the street from my apartment. I didn’t even know it was there until I showed up to take some MORE pictures of Moscow’s snow-covered parks (this winter has been very generous with snow, I love it!). What a great surprise, right?  Most sculptures were whimsical representations of Moscow’s landmarks like the Kremlin, or elements from Russian history, folklore and fairy tales, like the Cat’s House from famous, eponymous poem by Samuil Marshak.  Although the sculpture garden wasn’t crazy-big, it was very beautiful and enchanting, especially with the ever-changing lights and colors.

  1. Oh wow!!! That’s so cool. I guess that only works in a place that really stays cold-cold for a while. Here in Munich it gets pretty cold in the winter, but I’ve noticed it’s really unpredictable. One day could be super freezing, and the next pretty warm actually! Those poor castles wouldn’t last very long…
