AUSTRIAN PEARL

Wörthersee lake‑ is one of the pearls of Austria that attracts tourists with its enchanting panorama, hospitable beaches, magnificence of the Alpine peaks and the serene calm of clean water. The lake is located at an altitude of 485 meters in the heart of the Carinthian‑ region which borders on Italy and Slovenia. The climate here is warm, very mild, almost Mediterranean. In September, water generally remains warmed up to 20-24 C, depending on the year.

Convenient infrastructure and beautiful landscapes have made Wörthersee the most popular holiday destination in Austria and Germany. Life here is rich with sports activities, festivals and active recreation. The lake is surrounded by eight resort towns, each has something interesting to look at. They are typical Austrian, well-groomed and cozy, while each has its own character. The most famous are Velden and Klagenfurt. The main distance of 17 km is located just between them. Do not forget to look around while you are swimming!

And here it is, the last start of this season! 17 km - it was probably the best start I participated in. I will not even describe the beauty of Lake Wörthersee, everyone who comes to Austria in the summer should definitely visit it! Thank you so much X-WATERS for organizing such a cool start! Without you, I would not have been here, and I certainly would not have swum 17 km in the lake. X-WATERS - You are the best!!!! I hope next year you will organize again the Wörthersee Swim and you will find new, cool places for swimming.

Well, so ended my little trip to Austria and my main swim for 17 km # wörtherseeswim, which took place on September 16, 2018. It was a hard struggle at a distance of 17 km and really challenging for me! Last kilometers seemed to be the most difficult of the whole distance! Guys, I am the SECOND in the absolute classification at a distance of 17 km!! I'M HAPPY!!! I would like to thank everyone who supported me with all heart and believed in my victory! For me it is important and valuable! I would like to thank the organizer of X-WATERS Alexander Bazanov for the swim-dream in Lake Wörthersee! We will wait with the members of the fitness club for the same good swim next year!

It seems that in Austria there is a corner that radiates energy. Good, clean, bright. When you wake up in the morning from the shoulder pain, but at the same time you are smiling. This is a part of your reward. And on the neck you have probably the most precious medal. When after breakfast you want to come back to this place and say “thank you”. Thank you to the water for allowing to swim. For washing away once again all unnecessary and for opening a new path. For changing consciousness and showing new guidance. Why do people swim long distances? For testing themself? Unlikely. In order to get to know yourself. Better @alexander_bazanov thank you for what you are doing. And to all your X-WATERS team: Sergey Rybkin, Marat, Olya, Sasha Skryvlya I'll be back

WÖRTHERSEE MEMORIES. Story about our 17 km swim «Time to come up with something new! And something new came up very quickly. Kosta proposes to participate in a 17 km swim through the lake Wörthersee, which is organized by the company X-WATERS. Why not, 17 km we have not swum yet, and the lake is incredibly beautiful. We must swim!».

HOW TO GET THERE

Velden is located at the European crossroads; you can get there using different options. The nearest major Austrian airport is‑ Salzburg (200 km), but ‑ Slovene Ljubljana (80 km) is even closer, a little further, but also within a few hours of driving‑ there is Vienna (300 km), Venice (280 km), Munich (350 km), and Bratislava (400 km). From Salzburg or Vienna it is very easy to get there by train or bus, and you can easily use a rented car.

Klagenfurt (17 km from Velden) itself also has an airport and you can find some flights which would require connection in Vienna.

For Volunteers

If you are not swimming yourself, you can become part of a swim team as a volunteer. This is a very important role! It is the volunteers who create the mood, convey the spirit of the event, and make it all possible. Believe us, the energy that you get from the participants is incomparable to anything! Here, in Austria, volunteers who speak Russian or English will help us a lot. However, it is very important that in order to become part of Wörthersee team, you should be either an EU citizen or a work / business visa holder. In Austria, they are very serious about that... If this is about you - please contact us!
