Tatai Patara is the ʼBig Bangʼ of the year


On 22-24, May, an actual time travel can be experienced at the most prestigious European festival of the Ottoman period. The famous siege of 1597, which is of great historical importance, unfolds before our very eyes at the gates of the Castle of Tata. For three wonderful days we can exchange the boring weekdays for the authentic lives of people of the 16th-17th century while admiring the past-evoking environment of the Old Lake.

Put on your imaginary cloak that makes you invisible, and join us on this amazing adventure through which you can be a part of this historically significant siege.

Four monumental battles are reenacted in the memory of the siege of 1597, all of which we cannot only see, but definitely hear as well. Besides fighting, thematic exhibitons, a military band festival, horse shows, Turkish coffee tastings and beautiful belly dancers are waiting for the curious ones, who, in addition to these, can get a secret insight to the closely guarded Harem. The authentic fair of craftsmen naturally comes with fire jugglers and grifters. Meanwhile, visitors can join the dance house with the participation of almost 400 folkdancers as part of the II. International Folkdance meeting of the Tatai Patara.

This is the eighth time that the Tatai Patara enchants its guests with its 456 reenactors both from Hungary and from abroad, and with its nearly one thousand contributors. The „Teeny-tiny village” is waiting for the little ones with crafting programs, a folk playground and so much more.
Leave the monotony of weekdays, and join us on this great adventure back to the past, back to the loud world of the battlefields. Meet us on 22-24, May at the site of the Tatai Patara. An everlasting experience, an everlasting memory!
