The legends and sagas about combative and valorous Vikings are still alive. The warriors themselves are not history yet either; they still raise their swords and battle-axes, fight in battles and build fires in their camps every night. It all happens in the legendary Jomsborg fortress in Poland.

Wolin is a little town in the north-western part of Poland. Right next to it, by the Dziwna river, stands the proud Jombsorg stronghold, sometimes also called Vineta. Every year, on the first weekend of August, it becomes a home for over two thousand reenactors from around the world, from the United States to New Zealand.

The people reenacting Slavs and Vikings present old crafts, camps, adornments, and fighting techniques. An enormous battle with over 600 warriors taking part is the culmination of every day of the festival.
