[:RU]Where to spend the night in the Ice Age.[:]

[:RU]Would you like to sleep on a bed of ice in a hotel built of ice and snow in the freezing Lapland above the Arctic Circle?
A lot of this phrase, sure to cause goose bumps and shivers through the body. But there are those who decide on such an unusual extreme, that they will be remembered for a lifetime. Another would be to spend the night in this icy work of art that ever melts in the spring …
… to rise again in November, but in quite a different form, with completely different interiors and spectacular carved decorations in the rooms.
Each year, on a trip to this hotel, entirely built Snow, attracts about 30 thousand people. And 1.5 thousand of them dares still stay here for a night to remember forever the feeling …
Still, after all no one number does not repeat each other on the walls of each cut is very steep scenery, there is a restaurant, a bar, a cinema and even a church in which is carried out … wedding ceremony !!!


2. From a distance the hotel Snow Village may seem huge drifts of snow that had drifted north wind during one of the storms. But this is not the snowdrifts. As I said at the beginning, it’s rooms, a restaurant, a bar, a cinema and even a church built of snow.
And not because of snow blocks, namely, out of the snow, «graft» on the frame in a natural way.
Build it begin around mid-November, when the Lapdandii have the foundations in frost. A method of construction of the following: elevated wooden frame on which the fabric cover snaps and using snow cannons on top of the snow rushes. From time to time some water is supplied to fasten the crust snow and snow is again supplied. Then domes give final shape to the outside, remove the inner frame and polished dome inside. Since being built all the rooms: halls, galleries, rooms and additional space. All of the furniture and many decorative elements carved from solid pieces of ice on a lake in the neighborhood.

By the way, on the night. The rooms, of course, is pretty cool, but much warmer than outside. If there is the door -25-30, there is only 1-2 degrees below zero. If you decide to stay, you will be given the arctic sleeping bag and pillow. Mattresses, of course, is already on the beds. Sleep will have clothes and a cap. And believe me, you will not be cold. I did not just spend the night in such conditions during winter hiking in the mountains.
