On October, 23 and 24 Ancient Kyiv in the Principality of Kyivan Rus («Kyivan Rus Park») invites everybody to a spectacular sporting event of autumn – the «Scythians» horseback archery Championship of Ukraine. The strongest archers of Ukraine will gather in Ancient Kyiv in order to compete in the thrilling art of horseback archery. The guests will also be awaited by promenades on horseback, tasty dishes from fire, ancient Slavic amusements, extreme rides… And all of thуsу in a real live medieval city!
The Principality of Kyivan Rus is the only place in Ukraine where the competitions in this ancient martial art take place. Horseback archery unites two sports: horse and archery. The uniqueness of the competitions is in the combination of sporting excitement and romance of antiquity, which will not leave indifferent anyone – neither the smallest children nor the adult visitors.
The best Ukrainian sportsmen-virtuosos will compete in the traditional (historical) bow shooting accuracy on a horseback at full gallop. It is an incredibly difficult task for the competition participants and, at the same time, a thrilling spectacle for the viewers.
Also the guests of the Principality will see the demonstrative performances of actors-stuntmen of the horse-trick theatre on the virtuoso possession of different medieval weapons.
The sportsmen and the actors-stuntmen will perform in a tandem with the unique horses of historical breeds gathered from all over the world in the Princely stable. Some of these horses can be seen nowhere else in Ukraine because they were brought to our country in a single number. The horses can be palmed, taken a photo with, ridden on a horseback or in a carriage.
The guests of the Principality will be not only the viewers of the festival but will get a chance to become the active participants of the event and join the merry and interesting games, contests, Slavic amusements, fiery round dances and dance flash mobs.
