In this Saturday, May 18, 2019 photo revellers carry the statue of St. John of Nepomuk, the patron saint of fishermen, watermills and bridges in Baja, Hungary. The statue is transported from a chapel by boat on the Sugovica river to the main square of the town of Baja. The artisans who once lived in the neighbourhood that bears Saint John's name established the tradition of displaying the statue in the town centre once a year to commemorate the canonisation of the Bohemian saint. This year revellers mark the 290th anniversary of the canonisation of John of Nepomuk by Pope Benedict XIII in 1729. (Zoltan Balogh/MTI via AP)
