KÜLA VILLA GUESTHOUSE AND RECREATION AREA
At the end of the exciting day of field trips we will invite all delegates to gather in a beautiful setting of countryside near Tallinn to get a glimps of what’s the white nights and midsummer’s eve in the Nordics are about.
The midsummer or St. John’s Day (Jaanipäev as it is known in Estonia), is one of the oldest local celebrations. Due to its northern location, Estonia experiences the summertime “White Nights” phenomena, when the sun sets late and the nights is dusk at most. Midsummer coincides closely with the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere – the summer solstice. This year the solstice occurs on June 21st. Just few days before it, when we gather to celebrate the midsummer’s eve, you shall be prepared to witness how the dusk meets dawn.
Midsummer’s Eve is interwined with many folk beliefs. Children stay up until dawn, while young lovers wander through the forest looking for a lucky fern flower said to bloom only on this time of the year. If you are lucky enough to spot a glowworm, you may expect a great fortune. The more adventurous boys and girls are known to take a jump over the bonfire in hopes of achieving prosperity or to swing as high as possible on the village’s wooden swing. More moderate traditions include singing, dancing and telling old folk tales.
Our Congress guests will have the bus transfer to the event location after the field trips. Delegates who are not attending the field trip programme, have the opportunity to take the Congress shuttle bus from Tallinn directly to the Küla Villa. Delegates who are too exhausted after the field trips and prefer to head to the hotel for good night rest can have the shuttle bus back to Tallinn. Additional bus transfers will be organised from Küla Villa to Tallinn city centre hourly from 22:00 until 1:00.
