In the battle of Grunwald on July 15th, 1410 the Polish king Władysław II Jagiełło won over the Teutonic Knights. This was one of the largest and historically important battles of the Middle Ages.

The so called Grunwald Days festivities commemorating this anniversary will run from July 10th to July 14th. The main event, the battle itself, in which 1,150 appropriately clad reenactors will take part beings on Saturday, July 13th at 3:00 p.m.

Starting July 12th, around 4,000 knights and participants will stay out in the Knight’s camp in the fields close to the battlefield. At a nearby craftsmen’s town, sword and armor smiths, fabric weavers and cooks will present and show-off their skills at forging weapons, cooking and crafting items using the same methods as in 1410. Visitors can not only admire their handicraft but can also purchase these handmade products.
