There is also a good-looking (from the beginning proud) Ivan and a favorite witch, or Jaba Jaga, who lives in a cottage on the foot of a chicken, named after František Filipovský.

Frost is a condition where the temperature in the environment falls below 0 ° C, or below freezing. Water changes the state from liquid to solid, thus solidifies, resulting in significant changes. Rainfall replaces snow. The water, when touched by a hard frozen surface, changes into ice, ice crystals grow.
Frost occurs in the northern hemisphere, in a moderate belt, in the winter, in the southern hemisphere, the period is overturned. In the temperate belt, the southern hemisphere freezes less frequently, as there are fewer mainland and more oceans, resulting in the ocean climate most of the areas.
