The local population along with the intrigued tourists are marching up the hill – towards the main gate of the castle in Eger. Members of historical clubs – both men and women – are wearing seventeenth-century costumes today, and some of them are even accompanied by horses. The festival organized here on a hot Saturday afternoon will also provide a special attraction, shooting with muskets – for people only noise, but for dogs a real torment.

A sign mounted on a wooden castle fence warns: “Intense acoustic experience!”.
