Lviv is a city in the Western Ukraine, regarded as one of the main cultural centres of the country, and historically it was also a major Polish and Jewish cultural center. As a medieval city in Red Ruthenia, Lviv was founded on the existent settlement most probably in 1247. The Festival “Old Lviv”, dedicated to the medieval history of the city, is held in a beautiful cultural and historical place, the museum of national architecture and lifestyle “Shevchenko’s Grove”.
The guests have an opportunity to dive into the romantic atmosphere of the Middle Ages – the era of courageous knights and beautiful ladies. Representatives of knight clubs from different cities of Ukraine and from abroad come to Lviv to recreate life and culture of people in the 13-15th centuries. The main events of the Festival are knights’ tournaments, mass battles and old knightly fun. Near each of the wooden little houses of the “Shevchenko’s Grove” the medieval entertainment is offered to the visitors, including craftsmen’s workshops, archery and medieval dances. The concerts of medieval groups also create the fantastic spirit of the Middle Ages.
