Like any complex engineering object, a spatial installation by artist Alexander Ponomarev and architect Alexei Kozyr needs careful maintenance. Every year, during routine maintenance in Ice Cave, ice is melted with heat guns, the system of metal pipes is washed and blown out, and technological work is carried out in the refrigeration unit. Closer to spring, it will be possible to start building up new sparkling ice.

It should be reminded that in order to obtain an ice relief of 750 m², about 70 tons of water are frozen on 14 kilometers of curved metal pipes. The authors of the project were inspired by the complex process of the formation of the caves and their deep history.

In April the park will be filled with warmth, and Ice Cave will open again for immersion in the atmosphere of the North and for beautiful photographs in a mysterious snow maze.
