TATRY ICE MASTER 2019

HREBIENOK | 12. - 13.01.2019

(free entry)


The beauty of ice has found its home – the area of Hrebienok in the High Tatras on 12th and 13th January 2019, during the 7th year of the traditional TATRY ICE MASTER event. For two days, sculptors from ten countries will be breathing life into 50 tonnes of ice and changing them to 35 unique ice sculptures. A diverse programme is prepared during the event for all visitors. 

Skilful sculptors and artists will be working with 50 tonnes of ice to create imposing pieces based on various motifs and topics. The first day will be all about Gothic. On the second day of the event, the sculptors can choose any topic they want to persuade the jury and public with. 

The ice sculptures will be lit after dark to emphasise their design and beauty. One group of the ice creations will be made next to the funicular station building, another group will be placed under the second round 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. 

Vote for the best team of the 10 countries! Buy something at any of our facilities and ticket offices to get a voting ticket. Then throw the ticket into a box which will be located on the stage in Hrebienok to win attractive prizes! 

Various activities will be offered during the Tatry Ice Master event – games and competitions with great prizes, all presented by Tatiana Šúrová. Once all power saws go silent on Saturday evening, the Peter Bič Projekt band will perform next to freshly-made lit sculptures. On Sunday evening, visitors can look forward to Billy Barman and girls of the SĽUK folklore ensemble. After the music performances on both days, a special fire and ice show will be presented by Zsolt M. Tóth, a multiple ice sculpting world champion.
