Poland (Krakow as well) has started celebrations on the occasion of the 600th anniversary of win over Teutonic Knights on the fields of Grunwald. Over 2200 people acting as knights were involved in staging the Grunwald Battle on the 17th of July. Just as 600 years ago they had to bear extremely hot weather (over 100 F) but did a great job which you can see on the video here:

Krakow’s Wawel Castle as a significant venue in Poland’s history was also a place of lectures, exhibitions and concerts all of which were parts of celebrations.
