The Harbin International Ice Festival is one of world’s four biggest ice and snow festivals, along with the famous ones in Sapporo, Norway, and Quebec. Harbin is called “Ice City”, and the winters are bitterly cold, but the conditions are right for the ice festival.

Below are some of the sculptures from the 31st Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival in Harbin, Heilongjiang province, China.
