The beauty of ice has found its home – Hrebienok in the High Tatras on 18th and 19th January 2020, during the 8th year of the traditional TATRY ICE MASTER championships. For two days, sculptors from ten countries will be breathing life into 50 tonnes of ice and changing them to 35 unique ice sculptures. An eventful programme is prepared during the event for all visitors.
Skilful sculptors and artists will be working with 50 tonnes of ice to create impressive pieces based on various motifs and topics. The first day will be all about “Protecting our Planet”. The second day of the event will introduce the “World of Fairytales, as I see it”, which means it´s only up to individual sculptors what they choose to persuade the jury and public with. The ice sculptures will be lit after dark to emphasise their design and beauty. One group will be displayed next to the funicular station building, another one will be available under the second “dome” cover next to the Tatra Temple of Ice. The sculptures under the cover – in the so called Gallery of Ice Masters will be exhibited until the end of the winter season or until the end of April 2019. The sculptures in the open air will be there until they melt.
