I just love paper lanterns since I watched the movie Tangled. They look truly amazing when you see them floating across the skies, especially at night. They set a romantic and relaxing mode when they are up there, and people staring at them. I've heard about this Summer Solstice event in Poland, which makes me want to visit the place during this time of the year.
