Rotenstein 2016

Rotenstein 2016

At the end of May 2016, I visited the medieval festival called Rotenstein. The festival is held in a beautifully preserved medieval keep in Small Carpathians called Červený kameň, or Rotenstein in German. Visitors could enjoy lots of shows, including short plays inspired by medieval tales, workshops, falconry shows and jousting tournaments. This was my second visit of the festival and although the program was nice, I think it wasn’t as smooth and well organized compared to last year.

Rotenstein 2015

At the end of May 2015 I visited the medieval festival along with a couple of friends, that took place at the castle called Červený Kameň (Red Casle or Rotenstein in German). Each year this two day festival attracts thousands of visitors. Various groups present their arts, crafts and abilities, including swordfighting, medieval drama, falconry, horse riding and jousting. I especially enjoyed show by Saint Bavon falconers. Along the traditional birds of prey, they showcased a bald eagle. It was great to see this magnificent bird in person for the first time.
