A video of a penguin taking a plunge into the Fontanka River in the centre of St. Petersburg appeared on REN TV’s Facebook page on Dec. 2. How the bird ended up in the centre of the city is unknown.

In May 2015, a floating sculpture of a penguin on an ice floe was installed by street artist Denis Tof on the Griboyedov Canal in St. Petersburg.
