Great emka 2022-06-26 1:21

Hello Gert, You were lucky to see these girls in such a place with a view of the Old Town.

In Poland it is a similar tradition. We celebrate a midsummer on June 23 or 24, “Noc Świętojańska” which means St. John’s Night. Releasing wreaths with flaming candles into the river by young girls (which, in turn, constituted the divination of marriage), are just some of the most famous rituals of this night. I remember the views of the wreaths on the Vistula River.
A very famous custom was the search for fern flowers. The perennial flowers – a symbol of happiness, wisdom, and prosperity, which according to legend only blossomed on the shortest night of the year – it is said that the only brave and righteous people are able to find it.

Have a nice Sunday

MAlgo

Thank you Malgo,
but it's not the Old Town, it's the much newer Kungsholmen. ;-)
Cheers,
Gert
