Video Of The Week - Sweden's ICEHOTEL Turns 20!

By Meera Dolasia on April 5, 2010

Sweden's ICEHOTEL, the world's first and largest hotel made of ice and snow has just turned twenty. The hotel, which traces it's beginning to a 60sq. meter Igloo lodging, has grown to become a 5,500 sq. meter artistic splendor that is visited by thousands of people, each year.

Built entirely from the frozen waters of the Tourne River, the hotel is the collaborative work of many of the world's finest artists, who gather in the tiny Swedish town of Jukkasjarvi, year after year, to create unique masterpieces, only to see them melt away under the harsh Spring sunshine - Leaving behind just memories and some photographs!
