Swimming in December – why not? Photo by Mihovil Spanja Facebook profile

Swimming in December – why not?

Written by  Dec 27, 2016


Facebook page of Dubrovnik Tourist Board shared a photo of Mihovil Spanja, Croatia's most successful Paralympic swimmer, swimming in the warm Adriatic sea during these Christmas days. He won multiple gold, silver and bronze medals at numerous contests and is an owner of several world and European records, making him the most successful Croatian athlete ever. Spanja took a photo yesterday, while swimming with the stunning panoramic view of Dubrovnik behind his back. Sea temperature was 16 degrees.

This year December had a spring feeling with sunny weather and high temperatures, so no surprise some people decided to take a dip. Sadly, today the weather has changed, so it's possible that there will be no more swimming this year!
