In most European countries, the transition to the summer festival now in the music festival, June 21
However, at this time is traditionally celebrated St John, which is still celebrated in some countries or townships.


I currently in a Baltic country, Riga in Latvia, it is clear that the music festival finds no echo, people are busy with their great feast of St John (Midsummer Eve).

The official celebration, which takes place in Riga on a major artery road blocked for the occasion lasts 17 hours on June 23 at 5 am on the morning of 24.

At present, no more dances above the fire and some traditional clothing. But the fact remains that most women wear a crown of flowers and oak leaves men (but much fewer!).

It is this aspect that I present these few pictures that show this page some types of crowns that are adorned with all the colors of wildflowers or other.

Of Riga, on the same site, the pages on graph'murs'(graff'wall) met in 2011.
And Latvia, the exhibition 'Talking Stones' shown in Paris in 2005
