Hussite parade at Charles Bridge

Yesterday brought much more of history into Prague centre. A parade of Hussite warriors from 15th century marched across the Charles Bridge to Kampa island. At the top of parade rode on a horse Jan Zizka in full armor, a great leader of Hussite armies. Sound of drums could be heard in a wide surrounding.

People could see at Kampa medieval swordsmen, knights, a medieval market – a fair and jugglers. The meeting also offered medieval music.

This event was a small presentation of Medieval Festivities in Tabor town in Southern Bohemia. The festivities are between 15th and 17th September and visitors can see a lot from medieval times.

    I’ve tried to find information about Mediaval festival, but all of them are in Czech only. If you are interested, I can write an article about this festival. Is there something specific what do you want to know?

    I can also try to contact organisers of the Medival festival.
