Annually since 2006 KAUP Historical Reenactment Festival takes place on the territory of the Kaliningrad Region. Every August for three days it gathers participants and spectators from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, and Baltic Countries, thus contributing greatly to the development of event tourism of the region. Yearly the festival is attended by over 10,000 people.
The first and foremost aim of the festival is to reconstruct and revive ancient traditions of inhabitants of Samland peninsula, who lived here in IX-XI centuries A.D. The festival has several interactive grounds: forge, pottery, joinery, sword possession playground for children, petting zoo, archaeological site, bow shooting range, handicraft shops, and arena for horse shows.
