In August cannons are rumbling and gunshots are firing, while the bastions are shrouded with clouds of powder smoke in Narva Castle. “The Battle of Narva” is on! Historical Festival “The Battle of Narva” is a reconstruction of one of the Northern War’s great battles. The Northern War Battles of 1700 and 1704 put Narva into the European history textbooks. The Swedish Army under the command of the 18-year-old Charles XII of Sweden defeated the Russian forces in November 1700. Peter the Great conquered Narva in the second Narva Battle in 1704. The participants of military historical clubs from different countries are responsible for the actual events’ reconstruction in Narva Castle. The Castle is the host during three days of excitement. The main event of this historic Festival is a night battle, followed by Battle of Narva reconstruction between Swedes and Russians the next day. Organized by the “The Preobrazhensky Regiment” historic club and Narva Museum, the historic Festival “The Battle of Narva” is the major summer event, which attracts a large number of tourists.
