Midsummer Night Without a Bonfire

Denmark celebrates Midsummer Night every year on 23rd of June.
People gather around bonfires to sing and celebrate Midsummer.
Though something was different this year.
The drought conditions lead to a burn ban and the conditions haven’t change, on the contrary.
There are no signs of rain for the time being.

But that day on 23rd of June we went to Roskilde to celebrate Midsummer and it was a thrill to see the Sea Stallion from Glendalough in its right element, the fjord. You can read about the full arrangement for the ship at the Viking Ship Museum site.

We visited the old part of the town and had a great walk at Sct. Jørgensbjerg. The locals calls it The Mountain.
The view is magnificent!

  1. It really burns me up when certain politicians & others say there is no climate change. Lovely shots, Hanna! xoxo

    • Hi Resa. Luckily we don’t experience much of that kind of manipulation in Denmark and the climate change is also rather obvious now. An interesting phenomena and interesting at the same time 😦
      Thanks, Resa xx

  2. Great shots and celebration. I would also love to see the Sea Stallion!

  3. That’s an interesting cause for celebration. We’ll take it! 😄 Also, beautiful pictures.
