On Saturday, January 19, one of the main Orthodox holidays is celebrated in Ukraine – Baptism. Today in Kiev in various locations gather willing to plunge into the Dnieper.
The most enjoyable folk festivals traditionally take place in the capital city of Hydropark. Even though the weather is very cold, the residents of Kiev who come to the edge of the Dnieper, bathed in ice water, smile a lot and, of course, take selfies. The informant could not miss such an interesting event and walked along the banks of the Dnieper to capture how baptism took place in the most interesting locations in Kiev.
Of course, it's not only Hydropark that accepts those who want to plunge into ice water for baptism. Previously, we talked about how Kiev people swim in the new Natalka Park. This time the capital's mayor, Vitali Klitschko, joined the brave ones.
Together and in ice water it's not scary
The temperature is below zero and they smile
With swimming trunks like that and cold water is not creepy
Not everyone wants today to undress on the edge of the Dnieper
When that child is more daring than many adults
You can witness forever how other people dive into ice water
Ice water emergency evacuation
Warm rescue teams and sipping hot tea, watching the most interesting action
There is a minus on the road, but it has never been a problem for a girl who wants a new photo for an avatar
Although, to take a selfie, you don't always need to take off your clothes
A very beautiful tattoo
Yes, it's cold water, not the most pleasant thing.
When I forgot to turn off the iron at home
Naked girls are surrounded by people dressed
Looks, nothing is missing
Splash of joy
The main thing in the event was support.
With the elegance of ballerinas
Lifeguard saw the great success that came to baptism.
The bravest woman
The burning huts are unknown, but in the ice water enters
Just like shampoo ads
