The central event of the festival "Our Grunwald" is the reconstruction of the battle, held July 15, 1410 on a hilly field near the Prussian village of Grunwald, between the troops of the Teutonic Order and its allies: the Grand Duchy of Lithuania (modern Belarus) and the Kingdom of Poland.

The Battle of Grunwald was an event that changed the future of our country and the history of the whole of Europe. The victory in the Battle of Grunwald is one of the glorious pages of the Belarusian military history, worthy of pride and respect!
