Jõuluvana, the Estonian version of Father Christmas, and his Russian colleague Ded Moroz met today on the Friendship Bridge in Narva that connects the two countries to exhange good wishes. The pair visited both Narva and Ivangorod, the twin towns on the opposite banks of the Narva River.

In Narva, the Santas greeted city officials and took gifts to a local nursery. They also opened a new tourist attraction, the casemates of Victoria Bastion.
