Here comes the riddle – what two songs were included in the title of this post? We’re sure you’ve got it right. The first part comes from Disney’s smashing animated hit Frozen and the latter is a well‑known wintertime jingle performed originally by Frank Sinatra. What do they have in common? They both feature wintry conditions but the approach towards them is entirely different in each of the songs.

Another example of ice hotel is this Sweden’s iconic ICEHOTEL, which is built afresh every year from enormous blocks of ice from Torne River near the small village of Jukkasjärvi, 125 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Construction begins in October and the hotel is open for public starting from December until late spring, when the weather gets warmer. Perhaps the most famous is the hotel’s ice bar, where the drinks are served in glasses made of ice.

The wallpaper and a translucent coffee table in the background are also remarkable!
