Knights fighting with swords

On July 15th, 1410 two largest armies of medieval Europe clashed on the fields of Grunwald. The alliance of the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, led respectively by King Władysław II Jagiełło and Grand Duke Vytautas, decisively defeated the German Teutonic Order, led by Grand Master Ulrich von Jungingen.

The so-called Grunwald Days festivities commemorate this anniversary and, in 2022, will run from July 13th to 17th. The main event, the battle itself, in which over one thousand appropriately armored and armed reenactors bring history back to life, is scheduled for Saturday, July 16th at 3:00 p.m.

Around 4,000 knights and participants stay in the Knight’s camp in the fields close to the battlefield. At a nearby craftsmen’s town, sword and armor smiths, fabric weavers, cooks, and musicians present their skills at forging weapons, cooking, and crafting items using the same methods as in 1410. Knights and warriors show their mettle in various competitions and jousts. Visitors remain constantly entertained by many tournaments and kept busy shopping for unique handicrafts. The Grunwald Days are a superb way to experience the history of medieval life and warfare.
