Besed a traditional consorting form in Vepsia, a sort of rural assembly, where every one might come. There were beseds for all ages and, of course, for young people. A wooden cabin was hired (anyone arriving was obliged to bring a chop of firewood as a payment). The girls were seated on benches along the walls and span while the young men made their courtesy. One made merry and played and danced there.

Virtual besed

We tried to retain our nice peasant tradition in the web.. After choosing a nickname you enter the chatting cabin. Please hit the button "Look for Vepsian people" to invite Vepsians who happens to be online right now to take part at your besed.
