Culture Fair: Winter sports

The Russian winter is long and snowy. That’s why winter sports play an important role here. Ice-skating is definitely the most popular sport in Russia where almost everyone can skate at least to some extent. But except for ice-skating, ice-hockey, cross-country skiing, the biathlon, even winter-swimming is among winter sports activities in Russia.
