Traditional Lemko Midsummer Feast — report

29 June 2023

On June 24, 2023, in Nowica took place traditional Lemko Midsummer Feast: Kupala Festival celebrations.

On the night of the summer solstice, the Ensemble ‘Lemko Ring’, under the direction of Dr. Wiktoria Hojak, presented traditional rituals – dancing and singing.

This special evening can be compared to the well-known Valentine’s Day, the day of lovers.

Our Slavic ancestors paired up that night, and the fire through which they jumped was supposed to guarantee them eternal affection.

A fire Burnet in Nowica that evening. The guests feasted until late at night.

Thank you for being with us.
