The Vesnas were early Slavic Goddesses of Youth and Springtime, along with her male counterpart, a Vesnik. They were associated with rituals conducted in rural areas during springtime. They lived in mountaintop palaces where they discussed the fate of crops and people. A magical circle around their palaces kept them from leaving the mountain top except during the month of February when they would travel in wooden carts down to the valley below. Only certain people were capable of hearing them singing. People who snuck up to their mountain palaces might learn their fates, but risked an unpleasant end if they were caught by the Vesnas.
