Historical mega spectacle The Renaissance Festival is a fusion of late medieval historical facts and originality of Koprivnica, Podravina and Croatia with the heritage values of the Western European Cultural Civilization Circle (of which Croatia is a part), manifesting at the Festival through numerous chivalrous, craft and music groups from a dozen European countries. The event is a true example of developing the European identity of the City and the Region, and in 2015 and 2016 it was declared the TOP event in Croatia in the competition of all public events, and in 2016 it was awarded Superbrands status.
This will be the 14th time that the old core of Koprivnica, or the remains of the old Koprivnica fortress, will return to the past from August 22nd to 25th, with numerous depictions of former life in these parts.
More than 1000 costumed participants from 15 different countries will delight you. The entire renaissance ramparts are transformed into a medieval settlement, full of tents, towers, siege devices, camps and costumed inhabitants.
Numerous attractions bring the visitors back to a long time in the past, which mostly demostrate the medieval crafts, knights, kings and ladies, courtiers, alchemists, peasants , musicians, chefs who cook food on the spot by medieval recipes, and drinks only from that time and from red and pottery glasses to make the atmosphere as authentic as possible.
The main theme of this year's Renaissance Festival is torture and twenty torture devices have been prepared for visitors to use.
The central day of the event will be Saturday when, as usual, the royal procession will start from Zrinski Square to the ramparts, and in the evening there will be a fiery attack on the city.
Visit and do not miss a unique opportunity to experience the fascinating Middle Age and Renaissance time in Koprivnica!
