In previous years, hundreds of enthusiasts from across Europe and beyond flocked to northern Poland in mid-July for the annual staging of the famous battle.

Two years ago, some 1,300 reenactors wearing historical costumes and around 15,000 spectators descended on the Fields of Grunwald, according to a report.

This year marks 610 years since allied Polish and Lithuanian forces crushed the Knights of the Teutonic Order in what is considered to be one of the most glorious and significant military victories in Polish history.

Fought on July 15, 1410, the Battle of Grunwald saw Polish King Władysław Jagiełło and his army of allied forces defeat the war machine of the Teutonic Knights, which had previously been regarded as invincible.
