Midsummer Night's Dream over Poland

Skott L. | 12:12 AM | 6 comments





There was definitely magic in the air on the night above Poznan, central Poland on June 21, where eager crowds released 8,000 paper lanterns into the night sky to celebrate the shortest night of the year, known as Midsummer Night or St John's Night.

Thousands of people gathered on a field in the city after the event was advertised through Facebook by Culture Pozanski.

They bought the lantern from dozen of stores that were set up at the event. By 22.30pm, around 1,000 lanterns were released into the sky. Within an hour some 8,000 had been released. The lanterns began to resemble twinkling stars and everybody was suitaby impressed. It was an incredible atmosphere watching the stars soar to heaven.





The event smashed the Polish record for the largest number of lanterns released on one time. Organisers now plan to beat the Guiness world record at the same event next year.

    Dear Sirs,

    I have found this picture

    http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/mm316/skottchun/poland-poznan-festival.jpg

    on the internet and I realized that it is perfect for the poster I’m designing for the Junior music school from Novo mesto (Slovenia). The school’s symphonic orchestra will have a concert dedicated to the cultural festival of Slovenia.

    I would kindly like to ask for your permission to use this picture on poster for the concert. The concert will be held with free entrance. Is it possible to get the picture in original size?

    The concert will be held on 7th of February 2013.


    Thank you for your answer.

    With kind regards,
