    Passengers stand on a deck of a tourist boat with restaurant aboard specially designed for winter river cruises as it breaks through the frozen Moskva River in Moscow, Russia, Monday, Feb. 26, 2018.Temperatures dipped to -14 C (6,8 F) in Moscow and -24 C (-11 F) at night.

    After a relatively mild winter, the last few days of February have brought unusual cold, snow and ice to Moscow.

    The temperature is expected to drop to -28°C (-18.4°F) and bring strong snowstorms: by the beginning of the calendar spring, a third of the monthly precipitation is expected to fall on Russia's capital. 

    These aerial images show you the waterway of Moscow - the Moskva River, frozen and covered with snow.

    As you may see, however, the frost doesn't stop people from enjoying the views of the city.
