Ice baths of "Kreshchenie" in Tuva started on the night of 19 January

Ice baths of "Kreshchenie" in Tuva started on the night of 19 JanuaryKreshchenie bathing in Kyzyl began on the night of 19 January on the river Yenisei in the area of Vavilin bay. As midnight approached, a whole chain of vehicles slowly moved towards the place. People drove up to the warming tents, where they took their clothes off and bravely ran to the baths, where they took a triple dip. A huge Orthodox cross made from ice stood in front. For safety reasons, the police, MChS and health workers were on duty, but nobody needed help.
