X-WATERS Обними Россию 2022

Embrace Russia!

18 September
2022

Eastern Bosphorus, Vladivostok
Kaliningrad

DISTANCES
4.7 km + 2.6 km

What's the challenge?

Meet the dawn in the east of Russia, and the sunset in the west of the country!

Two cities, so similar and so different. One is the gate to the East, the other is the gate to the West. One is the base for the Pacific Fleet, the other is for the Baltic fleet. One meets the dawn over Russia, the other sees off the sunset. So, we will meet the sun in the East and see it off in the West. Let's embrace Russia in one day.

In the morning "golden hour" we are swimming in the Eastern Bosphorus, and in the evening "golden hour" we will finish at the famous amber lake near Kaliningrad. The distance between Vladivostok and Kaliningrad is 7,300 km. We will fly that part. And we will swim, in total, 7,300 m.

We did it in September 2020 and it turned out to be one of the best of our travels ever. 30 X-SWIMMERS did it last year and they confirmed every word - it was absolutely stunning! Stream in!
Why?! - might some nerds ask. Damn it, because it's possible! - we will answer. Because this is an unrealistically cool way to experience the scale of the country and its diversity in one day. And the speed of movement here is a fundamental thing.

X-SWIMMERS there is ONLY ONE flight that can make our dream come true. That's why we insist to buy a slot only after booking the flight

Vladivostok - Moscow: flight SU1705 Aeroflot, 18.09.2022 departure 12:05
Moscow - Kaliningrad: flight SU1012 Aeroflot, 18.09.2022 departure 12:05



18 of September 2022 will be an amazing day! At the dawn we will go into the water under the Russkiy bridge and swim 4,7 km straight to the FEFU embankment. There we`ll quickly change swimsuits to comfortable clothes and ride to the airport to catch our flight. Departure will be at 12.05 according to the local time. We will spend 8 hours 40 minutes in flight and land in Moscow at 13:45. After a little break we will catch a flight to Kaliningrad at 15:00 according to Moscow time. We will land at Kaliningrad at 16:00 and go straight to the swimming location to be there right in time and swim in the golden hour at sunset !

it will be an unforgettable experience. In one day we will embrace Russia by swimming and feel the scale of the country from the porthole of an airplane.
