This is the event when you can not only imagine, but also see, hear and even feel the time of empire style and Napoleonic wars…

Two-day festival took place in 20th and 21th of July. Main happening was re-enactment of the battle between the garrison of Dinaburg fortress and the troops of Napoleon’s army that took place in July of 1812 in nowadays Daugavpils. First day of the festival was dedicated to Napoleonic era, but the second to different historical periods.

This festival is special to me because I was one of the main organisers of the event in previous 4 years. Communication with re-enactors, artists, organising craftsmen market, writing invitations, managing visas and of course photography of this event where my responsibilities. I could not skip this event. In addition, I did not have responsibilities this time, so I could direct all my energy towards photographing.
