DURING the recent snow storm in eastern Slovakia, Vladimír Schuster from Vyšná Myšľa in the Košice district created a three-meter-high sphinx in front of his gate from the snow he removed from his courtyard.

The 47-year-old businessman told the TASR news agency that he thought the snow in Košice's historic centre should be used in the same way, not least because it is expensive to remove. In his opinion, the city should organise a snow-sculpture symposium, with artists and children creating shapes out of snow to make the pedestrian zone more attractive.
