      Hello Soheir!
      Yes, the ice carvers are amazing. If you arrive early in the day, you can see them making these wonderful sculptures using chainsaws and other tools. They do melt and if they get too unstable are taken down before the fall on someone. How long they last depends on the weather. Some years they only last a day or two and other times, they can last a week or more. I’m pleased you enjoyed them. Cheers!

    A few years back, I worked at a small, local college that had a culinary school. Several times a year the chefs would put on ice carving demonstrations for the students, and the rest of us just had to check the creations out. It has always amazed me what they can do with chain saws and other tools. Gorgeous. 🙂

      Thank you…I went out for photos on New Years Day in Boston last year and there was not a flake of snow on the ground….and then it was unbelievable. At this point, I’d wait until spring or summer to come. We kind of just hunker down for a few months.

        Ha! Well, there are places where they have ice sculptures, but somehow this never happens in Krakow. There is a tradition of sand sculptures at the seaside as well. Myself – nah, I have absolutely none art related skills.
