Transylvanian Citadels Medieval Festival
August 24-26, 2018
Organized in the historical centre of Sibiu, the Transylvanian Citadels Festival is a celebration of the city and its rich history. During three days, the city is covered in a medieval garment and the festival starts with the parade of the artists, all dressed in medieval-era habits. During the next days, live concerts of medieval music, theatre performances, street fights and tournaments, craft workshops and medieval fairs are exhibited over the city centre to the delight of visitors and locals.
The festival is also an opportunity to discover how people used to live, fight and survive in medieval times, to learn from the local craftsmen and to explore the medieval citadel with local guides. By the end, you may not want to live in modern times anymore.
