The entire event will take place in the Wisłoujście Fortress – a branch of the Gdańsk Museum, a unique fortification monument in the world, whose origins date back to the 15th century. In the 17th century, the fortification served as a lighthouse, a control point for ships entering the Vistula, a fleet base and, above all, an external garrison Gdańsk city troops.

In 2024, we will test a new form of the event, this time we will try to jointly recreate the operation of the fortification crew in times of peace and war. We will divide you into ten companies of the fortress garrison (in accordance with the regulations of that period), families living in the fortifications, Commonwealth and Swedish troops, and assign the roles of: officers – Rottmeister, watchmen of the city’s militia, fortress scribe, standard-bearer, chaplain of the local parish, and the chef in charge of kitchen work at the fortress, kitchen help, surgeon, watchmen, craftsmen and marquetians offering their services to the fort crew.

Battle will be carried out in the form of training skirmishes in an area known to you from previous editions. Also alarms for the entire fort crew will appear if enemy forces approach the fortress walls.
