Planet Dragobrat festival
How about skiing in bikini?
Make a ski accelerate down a slope so that only hear the wind whistling through ears and next jump on the thin ice of a mountain lake. But that’s not all. You need to get to the opposite bank and not to plunge into the water. What do you think about that? This is just one of many traditional entertainments at the “Planet Dragobrat” festival.
“Planet Dragobrat” festival is more than just a show. It’s a kind of movement that causes the way of life and a great celebration for active rest fans. This unique event is held in the unique spot of Ukraine.
Only in Dragobrat you can find enough snow for ski competitions in early May (!)The sport part of the festival is traditionally connected with the rest so that each of the participants and guests has a chance to compete and have fun.
The opening of the swimming season is traditionally held on the local lake. People have fun from noon until the next day morning: extreme skiing down the slopes which are still covered with snow, ice bath, sweet and spicy Carpathian mulled wine, dinner under the stars, music and dancing till down.
Agree that ski in a bikini under the hot sun it’s a kind of exotic. “Planet Dragobrat” symbolizes the end of the winter ski season in the Carpathians and is the feast of its closing.
