Father Frost’s residence in Belovezhskaya Pushcha marks 15 years this year. Over this time the Father Frost’s abode has received some 1.5 million visitors from 101 countries and, of course, millions of Belarusians. Every year the residence receives more than 17,000 letters, including from China, Japan, Pakistan, Africa, and none is left unanswered!

New Year magicians from all over Belarus and fairytale character from Russia Glinyshek from Yaransk came to help Father Frost celebrate the day. Together with Father Frost they were welcomed by Snow Maiden and Mother Winter and her daughters Cold, Snowstorm and Blizzard.

The events culminated in an official ceremony to unveil the art object celebrating the New Year. The forged composition near Father Frost’s estate features a clock which is ready to strike midnight to usher in a new year, a bag with gifts, felt boots, a walking stick and mittens of the fairy-tale wizard.

“This is the place where the New Year begins its journey lighting up Christmas trees across Belarus. This gave me an idea to declare Belovezhskaya Pushcha the Capital of the New Year. The world’s first monument to the New Year was built to celebrate this occasion,” said the Father Frost.
