Celebrations of Kupala Night in Pyrohovo

Museum of Folk Architecture and Life Pyrohovo (near Kyiv) held traditional celebrations of Kupala Night on July 7.

Kupala Night, also known as Ivan Kupala Day, is a Ukrainian observance annually held on July 7 to celebrate the summer solstice. Many Ukrainians celebrate Kupala Night with bonfires that last throughout the night. Some people leap over the flames as it is believed that the act of jumping over the bonfire cleanses people of illness and bad luck.

Many women choose to sport traditional embroidered clothes and a wreath of flowers on their head to celebrate this special summer night.
