World's Largest Snow Sculpture

Nobody Does Snow Sculpture Like the People in Harbin, China

Turns out it is in China, Harbin, China, to be exact. It is called "Romantic Feelings" and is 115 feet high and 656 feet long. Ice and snow were pulled out of the Songhua River. It's on the edge of Siberia - could you have guessed from the Russian influence on the design? It's lit at night with colored lights and lasers. They do it every year, and get almost a million visitors - not bad for somewhere that remote.

There are Russian churches, French cathedrals, Chinese palaces, and this year a replica of Stonehenge.

There's one problem: temperatures are rising, along with everywhere else.

These are the 2012-2013 sculptures, which are amazing enough. You may also want to check out the 2013-2014 sculptures here.
