Storytelling - Fairy Tales, Myths, ...

  • An Estonia folktale is presented and the other schools are asked to share, at least one, from their own country.




    Estonians have an ancient and rich history of folklore and fairy tales that can be traced back to Slavic and Germanic roots, and their Baltic-Finnic heritage. Surrounded by the majestic Baltic sea, enchanting forests and a diversity of flora and fauna, Estonian folklore draws from the intense landscape and provides meaning for the wild world around them.

    Lagoa das Sete Cidades (Lagoon of the Seven Cities), also known as the Caldeira das Sete Cidades (Boiler of the Seven Cities), is located to the North-West of São Miguel Island, in the Azores Archipelago - Portugal. It is the largest crater lake in the Azores with an area of approximately 4,5 km2 and a depth of about 33 m.

    The Lagoon, with different ecological dynamics, is characterized by the double colouring of its waters, divided by a shallow channel with a low bridge that separates on one side a mirror of green waters (Lagoa Verde – Green Lagoon) and, on the other, a mirror of blue waters (Lagoa Azul – Blue Lagoon). By creating one of the most incredible landscapes of the Natural Park of São Miguel Island, it is one of the main natural sights of the archipelago.



    The characteristics of Lagoa das Sete Cidades and the beauty of the surrounding landscape gave rise to beautiful legends and tales about its origin and formation, such as the one we present – “The Princess and the Shepherd in the Kingdom of Lagoa das Sete Cidades”.
