An amazing international festival of the historical reconstruction of the Middle ages “The Battle Between Nations” was held in the Khotynskaya fortress ( the city of Khotyn, Ukraine) from the 30th of April till the 3rd of May. Central events were fights between national teams of Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Canada, Italy and Germany. Besides soldiers there were a lot of other personages who just walked on the fortress territory feigning peasants or court servants.

Participants’ tents where they lived during the festival.

The Italian team participated in face to face and in massive battles.

    Hotin belonged to Romania before communist Russia took it away, along with the rest of Northern Bukowina and Bessarabia. There will come a day when all these lands will come back to the mother country.

    These sort of events can be a lot of fun, but you don’t half meet some weirdos there too. Some people actually believe life was better back then.
