8th Annual Winter Swimming Festival

On Epiphany’s Day, January 19th, sanctified ice cold waters have the power to cure and renew our bodies and souls. By jumping into the water, you let the old ritual bless you with spiritual energies, forging you with powers perhaps beyond your understanding.

Winter swimming events have become traditional in our resort, growing in popularity and attendance with each winter season to pass. Our "Warlus’ festivals" are being visited yearly by hundreds of extreme swimmers both from our country and abroad. Put your power of will to the test and join the healthy way of life club! For those who feel not so confident about their resolve, there will be an opportunity to take some sanctified water from special vessels and feel the cleansing power in a less extreme way.

To warm yourself after the event itself, you may want to visit our traditional winter fair, where a large assortment of hot beverages will be served. Region’s best folk bands and choirs will be there for you, to cheer everyone up with ancient carols and schedrivki.

The liturgy will start at 1pm.

Where: Bukovel small lake
