January, 19th is the Russian Orthodox celebration of the Baptism of good old Jesus. While the general public from the lad’s fan club jumps in ice-holes on the surface, the urban explorers submerge in sacred drain waters.

Having around a 100 spectators, only the bravest participated. Just look at this croud:
After a good show, the croud starts heading for the exit.
