Over 50 people took part in the traditional Epiphany swimming ritual in Belgrade on Monday to celebrate the day that marks the baptism of Jesus in the Orthodox Church. Participants plunged into the cold water, racing to receive the Holy Cross which was given to the winner of the race by Head of the Serbian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Irinej.
