Knight’s Tournament and Kożuchów Days

Get a touch of this vibrant city

Kożuchów, as one of the oldest Polish cities, organises among others events which reflect its rich history. The last weekend in May is traditionally a great holiday filled with colourful parades, concerts and a spectacular knight’s tournament taking place near the medieval city walls. The Kożuchów knight’s tournament is one of many interesting knight’s tournaments and re-enactment of battles in Poland.

Medieval traditions

Knight’s Tournament and re-enactment of the battle of Kożuchów

Among the most interesting annual events is the Knight’s Tournament which takes place during the Kożuchów Days. The Knight’s Tournament starts with a Latin mess in the Parish church with the participation of knights and ladies in medieval costumes. You will hear the oldest Polish hymn “Bogurodzica” (Mother of God). During three days of fun there is no shortage of booths with tasty regional food. After a day of struggle of chivalry and archery you can see the exciting re-enactment of the battle of Kożuchów from 1476. The day ends with a spectacular fire show.
