Languages of publication
The aim of the paper is to present the profile of reenactors participating in one of the most popular living history events in Poland: the battle of Grunwald reenactment. Another important scientific element is the analysis of some tourist aspects connected with the visit of reenactors on battlefield. In the first part of the article the subject matter literature review has been done. Some basic terms have been presented shortly, and then the authors have focused on the role of Polish reenactors and the battle of Grunwald reenactment. The second part of the paper contains the results of the research survey carried out among randomly selected Polish reenactors during the event called “Days of Grunwald 2011”. Although the paper confirms some well-known results from the literature of the subject, e.g. the young age of reenactors or huge expenses on clothing and equipment, other results seem to be new. One of them is the high percentage of women taking part in the historical reenactment or some new information about reenactors’ financial status. One of the most important motives to come to the Grunwald battlefield as a reenactor is to experience adventure.
