Are you still waiting for your knight in shining armour?

Wait no more – this Sun, 11 Aug is Medieval Camp, which will be set up in the Castle Park at Ljubljana Castle. A display of the life of medieval knights starts at 10 AM and lasts till 6 PM, admission is free!

Visitors will be able to gain first-hand experience of the life of Medieval knights with a display of weapons and knights’ equipment where they can try their skills as sword fighters and having their photographs taken perched atop the ruler’s throne.

A search for gold coins will take place at 11 AM and 4 PM, with prizes being awarded to the most successful searchers. In case of bad weather the camp will be canceled.

On the same day, below the Castle, The Medieval Fair, presented as an open-air living history event, will try to evoke an authentic medieval atmosphere in the midst of Ljubljana Old Town (Gornji trg Square). Stalls at the fair will be selling medieval objects, food and drinks.

The fair will be accompanied by demonstrations of medieval handicraft techniques and practices nowadays considered unusual, such as bloodletting using leeches, medieval dentistry, torture, etc. Accompanying events will also include creative workshops offering visitors an opportunity to try their hand at various handicrafts, and a theatre show featuring medieval buffoons.
