The traditional Erasmus Knights' Tournament will take place this weekend on 16th and 17th of July in front of Predjama Castle near Postojna, Slovenia.
It is a perfect setting for such an event.
Even George R.R. Martin - author of the bestselling fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire liked the place. During a recent visit to Predjama Castle he stated that he might include the castle in the series.
