The Day of Ivan Kupala

On the night of 3 to 4 July more than 700 guests (tourists and people who live in Novgorod, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ufa, Yaroslavl, and Belarus) came to the picturesque shore of Lake Ilmen thirty kilometers from Novgorod the Great. The pagan holiday of Ivan Kupala, that was originally celebrated on the summer solstice, has long lost its match with astronomical calendar, but has not lost a mystical appeal. the Artists of folk theater "Kudesy" immediately brought the traditional midsummer meal: bread and salt, so that there were no tears in life, honey sbiten withy spices, so that life was sweeter and the dance was fun.
