Crimea, Balaklava district, Fedyuhiny heights

There will be tremendous battles, military exercises of different peoples, everyday life and games of old times. The exact format is unknown yet, but the sun, sea and fun for reenactors are guaranteed!

Main locations

As formerly, Fedyuhiny heights will be divided into locations dedicated to different epochs and nations, important for the Crimean history. We are going to preserve all epochs of the last year. These are Antiquity, Russian and European Middle Ages, the Crimean War, the WWI and WWII, the Afghan War, the Cold War.

The Antiquity will be focused on adversaries of Rome. At the early Middle Ages location visitors will see a Byzantine camp. The novelty of the Crimean War — a Russian dressing station and Zouaves’ field theater. Also a glorious Sevastopol tradition will be introduced into practice here — an everyday cannon volley at noon.


Playground and camping

This year special attention is paid to children — at each historical location will be arranged playgrounds dedicated to the epoch. We are also working out a camping for our guests, so that they can stay in tents near the festival.

Loco Cimbali

In the context of the festival a new location of the XV century will be opened — Loco Cimbali. Fedyuhiny heights used to be the northern boundary of the consulate Cembalo 500 years ago. It will be a Genoese trade outpost with a farm and inn. The Genoeses are going to grow grapes and make wine, so far as a winepress has been built last year. This year they also begin to deal with livestock.

Stay tuned!
