There are in the world the kingdom of Swaziland, and more recently, Eswatini, which is known not only because it is one of the poorest countries in the world, it has the highest level of AIDS infection and an average life expectancy of about 35 years. But the fact that the kingdom annually holds perhaps the most exotic holiday in the world, when the king chooses his bride.

This holiday is called the Reed or Umhlanga holiday and takes place annually in late August and September. If this holiday is brief, then girls from all over the country come to a certain place and dance in front of the king to the floor naked. Every year about 80 thousand girls come to the festival and each must be a virgin.
Exact dates are determined approximately two weeks before the start of the holiday. I visited this holiday and prepared a video report about it that I invite you to watch.

Attendants also do not mind being photographed.

In 2018, the king renamed his country into the kingdom of Eswatini, due to the fact that she was often confused with Switzerland
