Winter Swimming & Dancing in Lipetsk, Russia


Ice-hole swimming is a traditional Russian fun. Winter swimmers are called “walruses” here. “Lipetsk Walrus Club” exists for over 60 years and since then a lot of people have joined our healthy lifestyle community. Winter swimming is popular not only among seniors but also among young people. Lipetsk ‘walruses’ enjoy the cold water as well as the cold air and go for a swim at any time of the day or night! :)
