The snow show comes to Europe

Paris, Rome, Milan, Palma de Mallorca, London, Kiev... the polar weather has produced some amazing scenes as it leaves a white blanket all across Europe and beyond


The heavy snow across Europe may have provided the kids with outdoor fun and a few unscheduled days off school but the severity of the polar cold snap is especially severe in Poland, Romania and the Ukraine, where temperatures have dropped to 33° below zero and thousands are reported to have required medical attention. In some places the snow is a novelty even for the adults. In Palma de Mallorca, this is the worst snowfall since 1956, while in Rome, the Colosseum and other prominent landmarks have had to be closed due to the extreme weather and dangerous conditions.
