Noc Swietojanska

 

Midsummer is celebrated on June 23 around Poland. People dress up, and girls throw wreaths made of flowers into rivers, lakes and the Baltic Sea. The midsummer day celebration starts at about 8:00 p.m. and lasts all night until sunrise. Many Poles celebrate this special day every year and call it Noc Świętojańska which means St. John's Night. This particular photograph of the celebration was taken in Skwierzyna, Lubuskie, Poland.
