Different aspects of the medieval costume – its beauty, practicality, distinctive features of clothes of different Rus citizens will be exposed in an interesting theatrical form. Since the ancient times it`s been considered to judge people by their look. In Middle Ages everybody had to dress only in accordance with his position in society. The violation of these rules was strictly punished. You can learn about these rules and punishments while visiting Kyiv during these days.

The most interesting part of the program will be that the guests will be able to see military fashion not on a stage but in action. And apart from historical costumes traditional horse equipment will be shown to the audience. During these days there will be the demonstrative performances of the actors-stuntmen of the Ancient Kyiv`s horse-trick theatre on virtuoso possession of various types of medieval weapons on horseback: swords, spears, sulitsas. In addition, the horsemen and their faithful horses will demonstrate the elements of horse-trick riding: various tricks, that are now used in demonstrative performances and in the past helped during the fights and saved lives in battles.

The real stars of the holiday program will be the horses of rare historical breeds gathered from all over the world in the Princely stable. The representatives of some breeds can be found nowhere else in Ukraine because they were brought to our country in an only number. You can approach to the horses, palm them, make a photo and ride on a horseback or in a carriage.

The bright show with the fire balls shooting from the Trebuchet – the only working siege weapon in Ukraine will be the culmination of the holiday program on June, 29.

A feeling of adrenaline for the guests will be provided by the fascinating zipline Politailo (where everyone can not only descend from the height, but also fly over the lake), as well as the high-speed slide “Zmey Gorynych”, after which you can take a picture with a fire-breathing dragon..
