    The International Festival of Historical Reenactment, one of the oldest festivals in Russia, has been held at Kulikovo field annually for more than 25 years.

    From September 19 to 21, Russia is marking the 640th anniversary of the Battle of Kulikovo, one of the most important military conflicts in the nation's history, as it prompted the rise of the Grand Duchy of Moscow and led to the formation of the modern Russian state.

    During the battle, forces under the command of Grand Prince Dmitriy Donskoy defeated the Golden Horde, the successor of the Mongol Empire.

    In this gallery, Sputnik shows you some of the highlights of this year’s celebration, taking participants on a journey through time.
