Medieval sword fighting, spear throwing as well as playing strategically and intellectually catchy Viking games was enjoyed by hundreds of visitors of the event “Family Day” on 17th of April on the bank of the Neris River beside the White bridge of Vilnius, Vikingų Keimas said in a press release.

As one of the participants of the event admitted “Playing with the sword and shield together with my friends is more exciting than playing games on my smart phone”. The event brought together families with children, guests of Vilnius and active youth who experienced untraditional and active Easter celebration with medieval taste together with the historical reenactment club “Vikingų Keimas”, creative group “Baltic Vikings” and its friends.

The next event devoted to the ancient Baltic culture will be the “Day of Warriors” that will take place on 27th of April from 18:00 - 21:00 at the same place – beside the White bridge of Vilnius. Medieval and Baltic culture admirers, and all other interested are invited to see live warriors and their warfare skills and fights. Historical reenactment club “Varingis” will perform.

The main idea of these events is to attract people’s attention to this period of history and to inspire us to think about such questions as what were the possible relations of the Baltic tribes and the Vikings - who actually were our ancestors - what, through history, can we learn from them, and how can we use this ancient knowledge and the skills which come with it in modern times?

The “Day of Warriors” is the second event which sets the scene for the final event “The day of Baltic tribes” on 6th of May, when Lithuania will receive its mysterious present on the shores of Neris River in Vilnius. Read more on www.balticvikings.com.
