Ice and Snow World

Ice and Snow World Travel Guide

Brief Introduction
First set-up by the Harbin Municipal Government in 1999, Harbin Ice and Snow World is by far the largest ice and snow art exhibition in the world. It is commonly referred to as possessing four of the key "most": the most art attractions, the most beautiful night views, the most recreational activities and the most forms of entertainment. Furthermore, the festival is constantly evolving and each year brings with it a new theme, providing visitors with a totally unique experience from one year to the next.

The ice carvings at the Harbin Ice and Snow World are regarded as some of the world´s finest examples of ice art, with visitors able to admire some of the largest and most majestic ice-sculpted masterpieces. Each of these ice carvings are designed in some way related to the festival´s theme, enabling travelers to sample a variety of cultural flavors. For example, in its first year the festival´s layout was designed around the idea of "Prosperous China and High-flying Heilongjiang", with the ice carvings depicting the rapid development of the country.

In 2005, the theme was "Friendship between China and Russia", with all the sculptures fashioned in a typical Russian style. Among them were replicas of some of Russia´s most famous architecture, such as the East Palace, and Moscow´s Red Square.

Understandably, the best time to travel to Harbin is during the winter. The Harbin Ice Festival is held either in late December or in early January, and for those who dream of a proper winter experience, Harbin Ice and Snow World is the place to make those dreams become a reality.
