Treski tsässon, Treski küla, Setomaa vald, Võru maakond
The tiny Treski tsässon, or Orthodox village chapel, can go unnoticed as you pass by it, though it is located right on the road. The villagers say that the building was built around the middle of the 18th century. Treski tsässon's patron saint is St. John the Baptist, and so St. John's Day is celebrated as a village holiday. Unlike in the rest of Estonia, St. John's Day is celebrated according to the Orthodox calendar here, so 13 days later. It's held on 7 July, meaning the party will be held on 6 July. Treski is renowned for its cheerful St. John's Day celebrations.
