The Order of the Silver Dragon – These are the photos from the knight tournament in town Sveta Helena in Croatia. The guys on the picture are a local group “Red Srebrnog Zmaja / The order of the silver dragon” and in general there was a reenactment medieval battle. Brave knights struggle for your attention. Their combat is just a part of the games they stage, so you need not worry about somebody getting hurt. However, they still manage to evoke the ambiance of medieval tournaments of knights. Sparks fly under the blows of the swords, while the ladies, squires and pages hold their breath at each swing. In the knights’ camps one can see the arsenal of medieval weapons, colorful shields and metal costumes. via (source)
If you get hungry, you will find refreshment in hot kasha made of the now almost forgotten cereals, or duck with honey prepared according to medieval recipes. A siege of the town, rocks flying from catapults and battering rams trying to break down the solid town gate – all this will take place right in front of you. You don’t have to be a mere observer at the Sveta Helena tournament, join in the games, test your archery skills, take a ride in a carriage or get on a horse. Cool stuff!!
