Ancient Medzhybizh, Ukraine

Ancient Medzhybizh, Ukraine

Every year in August hundreds of members of reenactment groups from different countries visit the festival “Ancient Medzhybizh”. They put on shining knight armours and encounter in battles and duels, as it was hundreds of years ago. The visitors have the opportunity to shoot with bows and crossbows, visit the artisans fair and watch the smiths, potters and other craftsmen performing their work. Besides, the costume contests, medieval cuisine and street theatre performances are to be experienced, while the evening program offers the concert of folk and medieval music.

For its 10th anniversary, the Festival in 2015 will combine the medieval epoch with the 17th century, dedicating special space to the daily life of that period and the 17th-century battle for the Medzhybizh Fortress (Castle).
