It's not -20° outside, which means: It's sand sculptin' time! Sand sculptures created by winners of international competitions and events from across the country have been resurrected in Moscow's Sokol'niki Park.

Visitors will behold numerous sculptures depicting the development of human civilization, as well as the imagined future of our — let's face it — troubled planet.

The exposition will be open to Muscovites until the end of September. Come now while the sand is still hot!
