Thousands of People Engage in Fighting as a part of Russian Tradition

Posted on September 20, 2015 by tim


They say that this tradition of mass street fighting is still alive in these villages and that it began in the 16th century. Even during Soviet times, over 600 people were engaging in the fun which usually lasts for three days. The tradition is not unique to this place – street fighting was very wide spread across Russia as general recreation, but let’s look into this particular place where even now in our civilized 2010s people meet each year for a few rounds.

A long time ago, people had no protection or helmets or anything – these days some try not to risk their faces and teeth and come protected.

“Before it was much more fun”, says Alexei, a local, “in the 1950s it lasted three days – the villages all around sent their fighters on horses and in cars. They brought food with them and sometimes celebrated weddings at the same time – it was big fun here, they were fighting and at the same time the people were drinking and eating at the newly wed’s celebration. At that time each house had 5-7 men in it, and now they are all abandoned”.
