  • German Tourist Takes Icy Plunge in Coldest Town on Earth

    A German tourist braved freezing conditions in Oymyakon, one of the coldest inhabited settlements in the world, on Thursday, as he took an icy dip into the river while air temperatures stood at -50° Celsius (-58° Fahrenheit).

  • Siberian Man Builds Complete Russian Orthodox Church Out of Snow

    The Siberian village of Sosnovka now has its very own functioning Orthodox church, the very first church here, thanks to a resident named Alexander who built the structure entirely out of ice so that the village faithful wouldn't have to travel far just to pray. Inside his icey construction everything looks like in the usual church – there is an altar, a copy of the New Testament and dozens of icons. Alexander named his church after the Christ’s birth – ‘Christorozhdestvenskaya’. In total, the functioning chapel features an impressive 106 square feet of prayer space to worshippers. The cross at the top of the church brings the frosty building to over 15 feet in height. Alexander spent a total of one and a half months to build his chapel and used over 400 cubic feet of snow in its construction. Before the start of the construction, he asked for a blessing from the local archpriest. Now the small church offers Sosnovka residents a holy place to pray. It will take a real miracle to keep the church standing once the warm weather starts to come around, but Alexander proved that all things are possible with a bit of faith.
