Midsummer Night

The main holiday of the warm season in Lithuania celebrated on the shortest night of the year (June 24), is very romantic. During the Baltic traditional festival normally celebrated in the open air, for example, on the hill forts of Kernavė, Mount Rambynas or in Jonava, women make garlands from grass and flowers, huge bonfires are lit, people dance and sing, and when it gets dark, they set out to search for the mysterious blooming fern. This day is also the name day of one of the most popular man’s names in Lithuania – Jonas.
