The Russian winter is cold, but life doesn’t freeze because of that. Moreover, people are trying to use it for having fun in any possible way. They plunge into cold water during Epiphany, they go ice swimming, etc. But the Russian fantasy for winter amusements stretches even further and really seems inexhaustible!

Watch the video and try and believe your own eyes.
