If you are going to Expo this week, the Lithuania Pavilion is one stop you don't want to miss. There you will be able to watch a special reenactment that takes you back to the battle of Grunwald.
The pavilion is reviving the country's medieval spirit to commemorate the 600th anniversary of the famous battle.
The Battle of Grunwald on July 15th, 1410 shifted the balance of power in eastern Europe and marked the rise of the Polish-Lithuanian union as the dominant political and military force in the region.
Therefore it became one of the most famous European battles and an important turning point in Lithuania's history. Today, the fight of 15th-century medieval knights is being reenacted at the Lithuania Pavillion.
Knights armed with swords, spears and shields show the martial arts and battle tactics used in those days. The first reenactment of the Grunwald Battle was carried out in 1998 and it has been held on a regular base since then.
