Medieval fair avaModern medieval fairs organized by historical reenactors give us a glimpse of how life looked and felt like hundreds of years before our time. This particular small but lovely fair is dedicated to the Kyivan Rus’ period (the 9th-13th century). You can see replicas of Scandinavian, Byzantine, Slavic, Irish, and other costumes worn by people in Europe 1,000 years ago. Cute kids’ and masculine warriors’ outfits add even more charm to this event.
