Everything you wanted to know
about the knights of our time
The unique glossy magazine Medieval Sport, the world’s first full-fledged printed sports columnist in history dedicated to the world of historical medieval battles (HMB), is published four times a year in two languages. The first edition of Medieval Sport magazine was published in November 2018.
Someone will say that in the age of media technology it is inexpedient to bet on the print publication, and even in such a highly specialized field. We parry: people whose soul lies in steel battles know the value of everything present. A video game will never convey the severity of armor in a battle with a living opponent, an electronic watch will never be compared in accuracy and prestige to a mechanical one. So the words enclosed in binding acquire special weight and significance.
Reading Medieval Sport, you can get to know the world of medieval battles and its direct participants, plunge into historical facts and events, see gorgeous photos of fighters and find out the latest news of our sport!
