In Prague on the 3 and 4 of September, there will be a medieval “Tournament of Kings” (Turnaj králů). Noble warriors will fight with swords and spears and compete in horse riding and group duels using different types of weapons.
Guests will also enjoy medieval fair, musical performances, and a rich accompanying program. For children, the organizers will prepare thematic creative and athletic competitions.
The event will take place in Max van der Stoel Park near the Prague Castle. This will be the tournament’s sixth year. Its organizers are the city of Praha-6 and the club of historical re-enactment, Rytíři Koruny České.
“The tournament is traditionally dedicated to the life of Czech kings. This year it will show the early period of the board of King Jan of Luxembourg who also ordered the tournament.
A big surprise for everyone will be his wife Eliska Přemyslovna, granddaughter Přemysl Otakar II, who will show that knighthood is not just a man’s affair,” the description advertises.
When: 3 and 4 September (Saturday and Sunday) from 13:00 to 17:00
Where: park Maxe van der Stoela (see map)
