In pictures: The Seto people
Remembering the dead

Although Orthodox Christians, the Setos retain their pagan traditions and beliefs with the worshipping of their ancestors and the eating and leaving of food on their graves in Obinitsa’s forested cemetery.

"This place is where I get my strength from my ancestors - we come here to remember them with kind words and happy thoughts," Evar explains.

This is followed with the toasting of departed friends and family with the local moonshine, Hanza.
