Report from one of our Russian correspondents;
We were able to visit the celebration of Walpurgis Night in Stockholm.
Mass expulsions and intimidation of witches and other evil spirits using torches and bonfires.
We visited just one of many events across the country.
A torchlight procession from the Old Town Square - the Stortorget, which ended on Riddarholmen island - it brought out the torches and then lit a huge fire - no witch, but nevertheless there gathered an impressive crowd on the Swedish coast.
After this the Swedes decided to use the occasion to show off their limitless musical resources and demonstrate the performance of a local choir, and then the vocal-dance troupe who performed in front of an audience.
