Divers had Set the Christmas Tree Underwater of the Baikal Lake

On 25th of December, the divers had performed the round dance around the Christmas tree in the Lake Baikal. At the underwater celebration, which took place at a depth of the 10 meters, there were The Father Frost, the Snow Maiden and the Christmas tree. The underwater celebration has ended with the underwater photo-session.

The water temperature in the Baikal lake during this time is not higher than 3-4 Celsius degrees, so divers had to make thorough arrangements and prepare specific diving equipment for low temperature environment.

Despite the adverse weather conditions, the tradition of the Christmas diving exists already for 25 years, and is the beloved celebration tradition of the divers, who celebrate the coming of the New Year in the Baikal Lake. According to the Andrey Baranovsky, the general director of the "Aqua-Eco", the main goal of this event is the support of the social interest towards the Lake Baikal's nature and development of the eco-tourism on its shores.
