Ice and snow sculptures festival Hyperborea is became the most significant event for the friends of frozen art. International Winter Festival gathers up participants from other regions of Russia and European countries.

The main part of event is an international competition of snow and ice sculptures. In the finals the amazing monuments grow from huge cubes of snow and ice on the Onego embankment. Sculptures are illuminated with bright lights when dark arises until the first rays of spring sunshine. Icy monuments with lights create a very pecial atmosphere of the northern mysteries.
