At the same time, in addition to the above program, on this occasion a Reconstitution of the War of Independence was prepared by GAL Calafat and PLIMM Calafat with Dolj County Council as a partner, where Calafat played an important role in the period 1877-1878, being the place where the first cannon volley was fired.
The main objective is to create and promote a representative tourist product by bringing to life the atmosphere of war 1877-1878 and inaugurating a unique event.
Those present at the events will be able to watch the reconstruction of some battle sequences and the creation of a historical atmosphere specific to the era, in order to attract as many tourists in this area. From original uniforms, specific to the commemorated period, to replicas of weapons and weapons of panoply similar to the original historical objects, you will surely have something to see!
