Weichselmünde 1734 – information package ENG – event canceled

Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the event „Weichselmünde 1734” has been canceled. Thank you all for your support.

Wisłoujście 1734 is the fifth edition of the event organized by us, this time after „Wisłoujście 1577” we are moving to the realities of the 18th century, precisely: Defending polish king by Gdańsk and the attack on the Wisłoujście Fortress. An important part of the spectacle reflecting successive events of the history of the Wisłoujście Fortress is reenactment of the atmosphere and culture of old Gdańsk.

The entire reenactment event will take place in the Wisłoujście Fortress – a branch of the Gdańsk Museum. A unique example of the naval fortress of the first half of the 17th century.

Since 2016, we try to unite the enthusiasts of the reenactment groups not only from from Poland. In last years the United Kingdom, Finland, Ukraine, Czech Republic and Spain have already participated.
