The opening of the VII Ice Festival of Angels and Archangels dedicated to the feast of Epiphany took place at St. Michael’s Cathedral

The Metropolitan of Izhevsk and Udmurt Republic Victorin led and conducted the Divine Liturgy, which ended in a religious procession and the ceremony of the Great Blessing of Water. After the preaching, the grand opening of the festival of Angels and Archangels took place and the awarding ceremony was held.

Every year more and more participants take part in the festival. In 2019 more than 30 teams took part – just as many sculptures appeared at St. Michael’s, in Museum of Water (the old water tower near the Central Square), near the spring named after D.A. Prigov and Izhevsk pond.

By tradition, sculptors participate in the festival not only from the capital of Udmurt Republic but also from other Russian cities: Moscow, Syktyvkar, Surgut, Sergiev Posad, Perm, Kungur, Tomsk, Novokuznetsk, Petrozavodsk, Tolyatti, Seversk and even a guest from Italy.
