Where else can you spend the evening on the eve of Ivan Kupala and meet the midnight bathing night, if not at the home of Nikolai Vasilyevich Gogol? With the holiday of Ivan Kupala, many beliefs are connected. For example, that on the night of Ivan Kupala herbs acquire healing power, that this night ferns blossom and the one who finds his flower will find happiness.

- we let out wreaths on water, we jump through fire, we search for a fern
