We have place of mass pilgrimages in Latvia. It is Aglona and every year on August 15 huge number of pilgrims gather there. The problem is: who should pay for maintaining cleanliness and order, and medics constantly awailable to provide emergency care? In our case all expenses are covered by the State.
