Naadam Festival Mongolia

Local Naadam festival in Mongolia

Franšais - Deutch

The biggest event of the year in Mongolia is the Naadam Festival, known as the Eriin Gurvan Naadam, after the three 'manly sports' of wrestling, archery and horse racing. It was celebrated for centuries as a test of courage and strength of nomadic people and warriors. People coming from all corners of the country and abroad enjoy watching the Naadam Games. The festival is held all over the country, on the 11th and 12th of July, the anniversary of the 1921 Mongolian Revolution.
