The Festival at the Medieval Castle Hill in Mezotne

A beautiful video telling a story about events and lifestyle in Latvia long time ago.

P.S. I'm the one in the long striped knitted dress :) not looking very much medieval, because was just there to meet friends, not participating. And accidentally was catched on tape..
