Dozens of snowmen line up in the famous pedestrian street of Arbat in Moscow’s downtown to the delight of passers-by.
The Russian capital has enough snow for thousands of snowmen, who have a traditional look — three balls of snow on top of each other, a carrot for a nose, a bucket for a hat, straw for hair. At the moment there are more than 200 figures, but this is just the beginning.
The appearance of the snowmen in Arbat actually marks the arrival of the famous Slava Polunin’s Snow Show in Moscow. The world-famous clown celebrated the warming from Arctic temperatures in Moscow with a parade of snowmen.
