I think that this theme will be especially interesting for you!

Every year on the last weekend of july in city Vyborg it's 120km from S-Petersburg arranged this event! Many historic club from all Russia come to castle in this city for three days. People in medieval costumes construct a big camp around this castle.:laughing: Till these three day medieval music plays there and knight participate in knights tournament and sieges. It's so exciting! You can buy a big cillection of cold weapon such as swords, axes, daggers and others!
Advise you to visit it because I can't describe all charm of this show!
Vyborg is a very old city. It was found in 1293 year by swedish leader Torgils Knytsen in time of his third Crusade against the Karelian pagans. It looks like a medieval European city. And it's only one knights castle in Russia. On the first picture there is a tower of saint Olaf, the main centrl tower in the castle. S. Olaf was one of the famous person in history of this castle. In 1164 he has been canonized by daddy Alexander III and began to esteemed, as the patron of Norway. And other photos it's a views of this great castle. There are a lot of sights in this city. On of this it's park Monrepo. One of the beautiful parks I think.
