Dac Fest- Under the Sign of the Wolf
The plateau near Măgura Uroiului was the point of interest of Hunedoara county.
Hundreds of persons were there, last weekend, on the plateau where a new edition of the most important historical re-enactment festival from Romania “DacFest – Under the Sign of the Wolf” took place.
The festival started with a costume parade on the streets of Simeria. Roman legionaries, dacian fighters, dancers or gladiators have been present during the three days of the festival.

The ones who wore the specific clothes of romans and dacians were none other than the members of the association “Terra Dacica Aeterna” the ones who organized the event. They have prepared numerous surprizes for the public. Besides the fighting, people could watch duels between gladiators, dances, old rituals and many more.
Everyone who joined the event was invited to find out about how our ancestors used to live.
The forge was the principal attraction of the photographers, while the workshops which make handmade objects was full of kids.
The location wasn’t chosen randomly, as it holds a lot of history behind it.
There was also an antic ritual of marriage, followed by lighting the “sacred fire” and a concert hold by the bands named “Praf”, “Quas”, “Aspru” and “Focul Viu”.
The contest “Sica de aur” took place in the first part of Saturday, being followed gladiator duels.
After these, the final battle between the romans and the dacians was re-enacted.
