- Story Text: More than 50 ice penguins mysteriously appeared overnight in front of Natalia Sats Musical Theatre in Moscow.
A colony of no less than 50 ice penguins mysteriously appeared overnight in front of Moscow's Natalia Sats Musical Theatre on Thursday (January 31).
The sculptures, which are all of various heights - some over 1 metre tall - have turned out to be popular with passers-by.
One local resident, Pavel stopped to view the penguins and snap a few pictures with his children.
"Children like them, adults like them, they come and play here with great pleasure, as you see. It's just beautiful," said Pavel.
The creator of the ice sculptures, however, remains unknown.
Some have guessed that the penguins were set up to advertise an upcoming play at the theatre, but whoever installed the display has not yet been identified.
