Kupalle celebration

Belarussian girls in traditional clothing jump over a fire on July 6 while marking the pagan holiday of Kupalle on the bank of the Pripyat river in Turov, Belarus.

Kupalle is the widely celebrated Belarussian version of the midsummer festivals that are celebrated throughout Europe on the Summer Solstice.
