The castle has nice sculptures, all different of others, an ice bar serving drinks in the ice cup, and also a restaurant. Drinks are very expensive. The bulding turns into a hotel in the evening, along day is possible to visit the rooms.

Visiting Snow Castle should not be the only reason to visit Kemi as it is pretty simple and has really not much to see. It is stylish, yes. It is cool, yes. It is a must see sight in Kemi, yes. But still: one hour...More
