The International Knights Festival "Protector of the Fortress" will be held from 14th to 16th June 2019, within the walls of the Niš Fortress.
The Knight's festival has an international character in which knights associations from Belgium, Slovakia, Croatia, Hungary and the Republic of Srpska will be presented. Apart from guests from abroad, the knights from Gracanica, Vranjska Banja, Stalaca, Kraljevo, Svilajnac, Jagodina, Belgrade and Sremski Karlovci will be presented. . All knights have authentic medieval weapons and chivalrous equipment.
The idea of the organizers is that this year the Knight's Festival will present visitors with a medieval way of life, a medieval costume, a knight's gear, a technique of armor making, swords and arrows, a medieval market, forgotten crafts and the knights' struggle.
Visitors to the festival will be able to enjoy hanging out with knights, in a medieval church and a knight's camp. For the youngest visitors to the festival we have prepared creative workshops, and many more interesting content.
The organizer of the event is the association Zmajeva griva and with the help, the Municipalities of Crveni Krst and the Tourist Organization of Niš.
