Fifteen skating rinks may soon open in Yakutsk

The spring season is coming. As it gets warmer, the Yakutian capital is getting ready to open outside skating rinks.

Some of them will be functioning on Lakes Shchorsa, Taloe, Teploe, Soldatskoe and Beloe, and two skating rinks will open on each of Lakes Saisary and Sergelyakh. Ice on these lakes has already been measured. Contracts contests are being held and works are starting.
