After past warm years, the weather forecast is, fortunately, favourable. And after creating these ice sculptures it is even colder here in Košice. So don’t worry! The ice sculptures should definitely wait for you here at least till Christmas, hopefully until the new year!

Ice sculptures are here already for the 7th time. They were carved into the clear ice bricks by sculptors from Slovakia, Hungary and Ukraine.

And what you can see here this year? As usually, it is a fairy-tale theme, so there are figures from fairy-tales that are well known in Slovakia. Such as Pat and Mat from a Czech fairytale A je to!

Or it’s Deduško Večerníček (fairytale grandpa) and his dog who kicked off and ended every evening fairy tale since the TV has been broadcasting in Slovakia. And you can also try the ice throne, but be careful, it’s really cold, so rather have a cup of hot wine before.
