Koprivnica – Renaissance festival
On the walls of the old city of Koprivnica in September of every year, a real historical event takes place. Under tents, the knights hone their swords as to win the hand of their maiden through a duel, hunting hawks circle the air listening to their masters commands, and merchants and craftsmen shout from the top of their voices to attract customers to their stands with their 'medieval' artifacts. The streets are filled with attractive fragnances of renaissance cuisine and exotic foods that were used in the past. This Renaissance festival takes place on the walls of the former magnificant fortress used in battles against the Turks.

This tourist-historic and educational event, the Renaissance festival is the biggest spectacle of live images from the past in this part of Europe, which has its stronghold in historical facts. Dishes made from nettle will take visitors back to the 13th century when Koprivnica was first mentioned and the manifestation starts with the staging of the arrival of King Louis of Anjou in 1356. and the handing over of the Charter of the Royal Borough.

Besides the scenic views of medieval life, chivalry, sieges, music and dance, visitors will be able to enjoy from the 4th to the 6th of September, dishes made from ancient recipes.
