Midsummer night in Savonlinna


130621-saimaa-c2-IMG_9940In Finland summer is short and usually pretty cool.  Finns get crazy about midsummer having parties through the longest day when it does not get dark.  It is usual to burn big bonfires like in the pic.  The castle behind is Olavinlinna where is held every summer Savonlinna Opera Festival.
