 Snow and ice sculpture festival,
Rynok Square and Lviv old town, early January

Lviv has always been famed as a city of inspired artists and so it has come as no surprise to see that the art of ice sculpture is thriving in the West Ukrainian capital. Last year’s snow and ice sculpture festival proved enormously popular with both Lviv denizens and visitors to the city alike, prompting organizers to promise an even more expanded programme this time round. At time of going to press the exact date of the festival had yet to be confirmed, but Lviv arts fans should be on the look-out for these seasonal works of art as New Year comes around. Participating artists will be drawn from across Ukraine, with numerous international prize-winners set to be among the featured craftsmen.
