TATRY ICE MASTER 2018 | 12 – 14/1/2018


The beauty of ice has found its home – the area of Hrebienok in the High Tatras from 12th to 14th January 2018, during the 6th year of the traditional TATRY ICE MASTER event. For three days, sculptors from ten countries will be breathing life into 50 tonnes of ice and changing them to 40 unique ice sculptures.

The evening programme begins on Friday 12/1/2018 with a concert of the popular singer Jana Kirschner at 17:15. On Saturday 13/1/2018, visitors can enjoy a unique performance of King Shaolin and a special fire-and-ice show which will be presented on the last day of the event as well. 

Skilful sculptors and artists will be working with 50 tonnes of ice to create imposing pieces based on various motifs and topics. On the first day, the sculptors can choose any topic they want. The second and third day of the event will be all about The country I come from and World fauna and flora.

The event is free of charge.

Sledging in Hrebienok is not available during the Tatry Ice Master event.
