From May, 16 till May, 19 in the «Kyivan Rus Park» the World Medieval Combat Championship IMCF (within the Medieval Combat Festival) will take place.
Over 1000 fighters from about 30 countries all over the world will gather on the big tilting-yard of Ancient Kyiv to fight for the title of the world champions.
The sportsmen will put on heavy knight armor, will take in their hands the medieval weapon made according to the historical samples and will face each other in real medieval battles. During four days it will be possible to see single and group fights and even the women`s duels. Every evening the guests will be awaited by buhurts – mass fights, the largest of which will take place on Saturday – up to 500 against 500 warriors.
These are not staged fights, here everything is for real!
In between the fights an entertaining program with equestrian performances, flash mobs, games and master-classes will be waiting for the guests. And in the evening – firing flaming kernels from the Trebuchet, and on Saturday– also a fire show.
