Most of Europe is under the deep freeze at the moment, and many countries experienced heavy amounts of snow, with the exception of Malta. England, France and most of the Eastern European countries are covered with snow. What was a surprise though is the snow that fell in many parts of Italy which sees snow once a decade.
This was the case at the Vatican where priests and nuns enjoyed snowball fights, tourists saw icicles at the two fountains in St. Peter’s square and took thousands of photos of the unusual snow-covered holy ground and cupola. Even a snow-pope was created with the snow that fell in Rome.
