A unique cultural initiative, the project facilitated de development of historical re-enactment as a new instrument to understand and value culture, as well as to contribute to the durable development of the local community.

Facts & figures

Vikinglag Trondheim group attending Râșnov Historical Reenactment Festival

The sixth edition of the festival was dedicated to the concept of living history emphasizing the authenticity of everyday life in the fortress.

During the four-day festival, over 4,000 visitors of Râșnov Fortress got a real contact with history as it was presented by Living Rosenau group in partnership with 43 representatives of Viking community in Norway and Europe.

The public discovered a vast array of activities which can animate a cultural space: crafts revived (pottery, embroidery, processing copper) and remembrance of historical events (ceremonies, battles), interactive games for families, workshops dedicated to children and lectures.

Promoting the project results to other cultural events

Project team members attended different seminars, conferences and cultural meetings. It was a good opportunity to prove that a historical site can be revitalized through the implementation of interactive activities using a non-formal education method and to facilitate public understanding regarding the specificity of a local community heritage.
