On July 21 and 22 in the Peter and Paul Fortress for the fifth time will be held the largest historical festival of the knightly Middle Ages – Battle on the Neva.
International Military Historical Festival Battle on the Neva is rightly considered to be one of the largest and most iconic projects of the Courage of Ages organization in the North-West of the country. This is an open-air festival in the middle of summer, which takes place annually in the center of St. Petersburg on the territory of the Peter and Paul Fortress.
The event includes all the traditional popular activities of our summer historical festivals such as spectacular battles of knights: an exciting international equestrian tournament; walks through the expanses of an interactive camp-museum, telling the history of different epochs and countries; learning archery and fencing skills. There is a large and rich medieval fair with authentic goods and food on the territory of the festival, and even more – there are interactive zones and master classes in ancient crafts for children and adults. But the main thing here is definitely the atmosphere of a real medieval festival.
