 MINSK, 23 May (BelTA) – The international historical festival Legacy of Centuries will be held for its third time in Mir Castle on 27-30 June, the organizers told BelTA.

The program will also include foot and horse tournaments, archery and crossbowmen competitions, fights, a staged battle, and a competition among pikemen.
