Kingdom of Ice

02.10.2012 – 09.09.2014
This year makes us happy   with truly winter weather. To a number of winter activities (skating,   skiing, snowboarding, sleighing etc.) we can enjoy, one more was added.   It is so called Ice Kingdom which everyone can witness in the museum of   Ice.  It was opened this year in Sokolniki park, pavilion № 11 and is   planned to work all year round.

Its visitors will be   able to have a journey to the kingdom of ice and snow fantasies in any   season.  To preserve this exposition in good condition the organizers of   this museum maintain a certain temperature which does not exceed – 10. For that reason all visitors are given down-padded coats to stay warm   and enjoy real masterpieces.
Here you can see   mythological creatures such as winged horse Pegas and jelly fish   Gorgona, a threatening guard in armour,  a dinosaur\''s skeleton. A part   of this exhibition is dedicated to alien creatures from different   planets and galaxies. One can also enjoy a huge ice living room where   you can lie on the transparent bed, sit at the dining table and look at   the ice mirror. The authors of this project did not avoid the Christmas   theme. They made the Biblical scene of Nativity with Maria, Josef, baby   Jesus and divine angel. 

Despite all the   beauty of natural material, it would be hard to create this fairy   kingdom without special lighting which definitely reinforces your   impression while music accompaniment creates pleasant   atmosphere.


For those who are not   accustomed to be just watchers, the museum offers a workshop during   which you are explained how to work with so fragile material as ice.    Armed with such tools as a chainsaw, chisels and an iron you can embody   your fantasies into ice. Under the guidance of an experienced ice   sculptor you make a real ice sculpture with your own   hands.

I was lucky to be guided around this exhibition   and participate in this workshop. With a help of our distinguished   mentor, repeated world champion in sand and ice sculptor me and my   friend created our first ice sculpture, mischievous   squirrel.

You can also see the official web-site (only   in Russian) of this museum to learn more about workshops and   exhibition.

Your Moscow tour   guide will be glad to accompany you to this exhibition    and be your interpreter during the workshop.
