Summer is very short in Russian Far North. According to the guests from southern parts of the country, there is no summer at all – temperatures rarely rise above 20C and only in July.

But now local residents can rejoice in the melting snow and drift ice floes on the rivers. The most spectacular pictures published by Instagram users came from the shores of Yenisei river.

A photo compilation shows how the melting ice becomes main attraction of the North for a few days only.
