The services once again appeal to be reasonable around the water and not to charge. – Above all, do not overestimate your abilities. If we are not sure about them, let’s not risk it, let’s not go too far into this water. If we want to swim a bit, let’s try to enter the water either at a guarded swimming pool or in its vicinity, where we can actually see a flag flying from a distance and then we know if it is safe, if there are conditions for safe swimming – advises Goeck.
