Midsummer celebrations in Baltics
20.06.2016

Summer Solstice or Midsummer has always been a very important celebration in Baltic countries – since centuries people have celebrated the shortest night of the year with traditional songs and rituals. Nowadays most people still find a way to spend this night in the nature under open sky at the bonfire with traditional food and music. Traditional Midsummer markets on the day before Midsummer offer local products and wild flowers for making the floral wreath. There are also Midsummer celebrations planned in the cities for those, who want to enjoy live concerts and dancing till dawn. Happy Summer Solstice!
