For the first time in Barnaul passed costume joust.
Last weekend Avenue Socialist stepped into seven centuries ago - in the era of chivalry. Walking on asphalt tracks young people in armor, merchants sold layouts swords and sabers own making, ladies in medieval costumes searched his Lancelot. Issued only one thing: an unusual presentation of the participants drank water from plastic bottles and occasionally getting out of a cell phone pocket, checking the call log and the number of sent messages.

For two days, the building “C”, Altai State University boiled serious passions. This is where the strength and stability of Russian and European soldiers, or rather, members of historical clubs from all over Siberia.

It was one of the greatest victories of the Russian foreign invaders. The region costumed tournaments of this kind to date was carried out. Our goal - to introduce deeper barnaultsev with the history of Russia with the help of improvisation and prove how a school subject is interesting, - says the organizer, a student at ASU Angelina Yurevich.

Especially hot in the tournament was on Saturday. In a race - as in ancient times was called a platform for competition - sword fighting most powerful knights. Given that the sun was beating down on the street, and the weight of the costume is achieved only forty-odd pounds, measure the power of the participants was not easy.

A young man is in it for more than five years and participates in competitions at various levels.

Especially liked the style of medieval festivals in the camps, when excluded subjects of modern life and even today’s food - emphasizes Vitaly Pechkunov.
