And here comes the second part of our trip to Latvia, which is based on the activities we did. All together on our short trip, we visited Riga, Jurmala & Sigulda, during these days. And let me assure you – it was full of fun! 😍
Midsummer or St. John’s Day, Jaanipäev as it is known in Estonia, is one of the oldest local celebrations. Late June is the perfect time for a holiday in the blooming nature where days extend into nights, with barely any darkness in sight.
For us, Estonians, Midsummer is pretty important. It is the longest day of the year & it has been celebrated for a very long time with different traditions. Most common ones are probably that young lovers wander through the forest looking for a lucky fern flower said to bloom only this night. And that if you find the glowworm, you may expect a great fortune! 🔮
This blog post will take me back – again – to Saaremaa (as couple of weeks ago) & to one of my first times staying in hotel in my home town.. 😀 We decided to stay in Johan Spa Hotel, as they have sauna & outdoor swimming pool. And of course they are totally in the centre of Kuressaare and the price was good. ✌🏻
