The Witcher’s Village

12 September 2021 | 08:00 - 20:00

On 12 September, the Witcher’s Village will be built in Polanka Redłowska in Gdynia. We would love to invite whole families to spend time actively in the open air amid the Witcher’s world.

The Witcher’s Village means an event that integrates the local community by having fun. This is why almost all attractions are planned so that you can participate in them together, regardless of age. For those who like to compete, there are competitions, including but not limited to Gwent tournament or the Witcher knowledge quiz. We will also jointly create a memory portrait of a Slavic monster.

We would like to encourage fantasy lovers to attend a meeting with Łukasz Kozak – the author of the book “Upiór. Historia naturalna” [Phantom. Natural history]. The subject of the book revolves around “Polish vampires”, namely phantoms, seers, strigoi.

At the very end of the fun, we invite you to a concert by the DISCANTUS band, and then a bonfire accompanied by dancing. Throughout the event, there will be food trucks in Polanka where you have a bite at any time.
