Last weekend, I went to Quebec City for the last weekend of its annual Winter Carnaval. I’m glad I did–despite the freezing winter that almost made my cheeks as hard as a stone. I’ve never experienced such coldness before and I don’t think I’d be going back to Quebec City during winter—in 5 years! Or more. LOL…
Just outside the city wall of Old Quebec on St. Louis Street and in front of the Provincial Parliament Building, there are Ice Castle and Ice Sculptures that look stunning at night. The ice castle isn’t that big but its creativity would astound you.

And this is the ice castle (above) looks like during the day.
This is one of the spaces you can see inside the Ice Castle.
Outside the Ice Castle is the ice version of the famous chair of the [easyazon_link asin=”B00KHWSD1O” locale=”US” new_window=”yes” nofollow=”default” tag=”pridecostume-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”yes”]Game of Thrones[/easyazon_link], a TV series that swept across the world for its action-packed scenes and unexpected turns, twists and surprises.
Then, there are ice sculptures, too.
And of course, Bon Homme, the official winter snowman mascot of 2015 Winter Carnaval in Quebec City.
I’ll be adding more photos in my next blog entries. Come back and check out the photos from the Winter Carnaval Parade, the frozen beauty of Montmorency Falls and the dazzling Ice Hotel.
WHERE TO STAY IN QUEBEC CITY
If you are looking for a good youth hostel in Quebec City, I’d recommend staying at the HI Quebec-Auberge Internationale de Quebec Hostel. It’s located right inside Old Quebec and walking distance to everything you want to see, do and eat in the city.
