THE HARBIN ICE FESTIVAL

The Harbin Ice and Snow Festival, one of the main winter events in China, opened today with hundreds of colossal ice sculptures in the form of palaces or Buddhas that have become a visual spectacle that attracts more than a year million tourists.

In the thirty-fourth edition of the festival under the motto “Harbin, the Pearl of the Crown of Ice and Snow“, 180,000 cubic meters of ice and 150,000 cubic meters of snow have been used, a record number, covering an area of 800,000 square meters.

During the day today, several workers worked to finish the last details of the colossal statues of frozen water and snow that have already begun to be visited by many people who braved the low temperatures to contemplate snow sculptures of 35 meters high and 100 meters high. long.

Although the sculptures are expected to be exposed until mid-February, their duration will depend on whether the low temperatures allow them to stand.

The nineteenth edition of the temporary theme park “Great World of Ice and Snow” was also inaugurated this Friday, which includes an ice and snow sculpture competition, for example.

Harbin, capital of Heilongjiang province, the northernmost country on the border with Russia, receives every winter more than one million tourists, mostly Chinese, attracted by these spectacular statues.

To promote this famous international festival, Chinese state television CCTV will dedicate a special program tonight in which there will be musical performances. (January 5, 2017, EFE/Practica Español)
