Last day of the fair

What a beautiful day! It was cold in the morning, but it soon got warmer. We all went to the fair. I bought all the fish we needed on Monday so we didn't buy anything at all, but it was still very nice walking around looking. Lots of people everywhere today. View over the Market Square and the Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral.

The fish fair has been a tradition since 1743. This was the 267th fair! For most of the fishers this is the most important event of the year. They sell about 50 tons of fish during the week.

We had lunch at a pasta place. The food was good and then we had chocolate mud cake for dessert. Perfect!

Of course I just had to take some pictures of colourful leaves - even if the girls thought it was time to go home...
