Tonight, January 19, in honor of the Orthodox holiday of the Baptism of the Lord, many residents of our region decided to follow a long-standing tradition and plunge into the consecrated font three times. This time they were equipped in 20 places, while in Omsk there were no official ones.
One of the closest places to the city is the Achair Monastery, where the water in the spring will keep the temperature around +37 degrees even in winter.
A large company gathered at the font in Kormilovka. True, the guys decided not to wear masks and not maintain social distance, despite the rules.
The warm mineral spring in Achairskoye is gaining popularity - people come with whole families.
And some chose natural reservoirs for Epiphany bathing.
Alexey Dudoladov also visited the font, who was chosen by the readers of "NO" for his active life position as the main social activist of 2020. The blogger shared a snapshot of the baptism in his stories.
Some Omsk residents this year plunged into the font for the first time, like these girls.
And some did not dare, but they filmed how their big and small men were swimming in the ice-hole.
