    Participants of the St. George Knight Tournament at the Kolomenskoye park and museum in Moscow

    The Kolomenskoye Museum Reserve in Moscow is taking visitors to the Middle Ages in the fourth tournament of St. George which will bring together the best knights from Canada, Great Britain, Holland and Belarus.

    The St. George's Tournament includes two horsemen armed with solid wood spears clashes, melee — group skirmishes on horseback and duels using two-handed weapons. Visitors can dress up in medieval costumes, sit at an authentic tribune and enjoy the spectacle at close range. In 2018, for the first time, competitions for foot soldiers will be held as an independent tournament with their own winner.
