Waters of Black Sea Covered with Ice

It's been about 30 years, since The Black Sea was fully covered with ice. In only 100m from the beach you can see icebergs.

Due to this conditions, untill February 15th, Ukrainian and some Romanian ports were closed. Ice thickness is about 40cm on the beach.

But locals and tourists are taking advantage of the situation, and building open rinks, sculpures and many more.
