The Desna 6.5 is a challenging 6.5 km river swim down the Desna river in Kiev, Ukraine.

Maksym Polshcha describes the event, “It is like swimming the Bosphorus in Istanbul. It is the same distance with similarly strong currents, but there are a swimming cap, towel, pasta party, and a free massage zone at the finish line for all participants.
