Top destination around Flower Clock in Ventspils - Ventspils

The culture of local people is very interesting and authentic. Besides the traditional national emblem and anthem, they have several original national symbols. For example, white wagtail became the national bird in 1960. The tiny bird spends only half a year in the city, leaving for winter. Local people also have the national flower, chamomile. The flower has become an essential symbol of various celebrations. Oak and linden are popular trees in the region and are widely used in the local medicine.
Jani Day or solstice is, without a doubt, one of the most interesting and unusual national celebrations. This holiday appeared approximately during the early medieval years when local people felt obliged to thank Jani, the fertility god, for a good harvest. With time, the holiday lost its sacral meaning and most rituals were forgotten, but local people still follow some of those ancient traditions.

For example, many prefer to go to the countryside on the holiday day in order to be closer to nature. They admire the beautiful landscapes and gather herbs. It is believed that all plants have special healing properties on this day. People make circlets from oak and linden leaves and take them home. These self-made amulets are believed to protect houses. In accordance with another tradition, locals make big fires, this way greeting the powerful sun.
