Ólavsøka by night

There was a Faroese National festival “Ólavsøka” last week. Second night of Ólavsøka people meet in the centrum of Tórshavn at midnight to sing together and to dance faroese chain dance. Of course I was there to take some pictures. After the singing was finished, there were fireworks.

Minuly tyzden sme tu mali fajersky narodny sviatok “Ólavsøka”. Druhu noc tohto sviatku sa ludia stretnu v centre mesta o pol noci a spievaju spolu ludove piesne a tacuju fajersky tanec, pri ktorom ludia vytvoria retaz, a idu jeden do prava a dva do lava. Pri tomto tanci sa spievaju specialne piesne, ktore maju v priemere okolo 50 versov. Za kazdym versom sa samozrejme spieva aj refren.
Na koniec bol aj ohnostroj, ktory mal byt den predtym, ale kvoli hmle bol presunuty na dalsiu noc.
