Medieval Prague Hen Weekend
Prague today has become famous for its vibrant youthful culture, its excellent and varied nightlife and its aesthetic charms, however centuries ago, way back in the middle ages, Medieval Prague was a crossroads where traders sold goods and told stories.
Luckily the medieval epicenter of the city, the Old Town of Prague, was largely untouched during the Second World War which destroyed much of Europe’s medieval heritage. Granted UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage status in 1992, this historical core can now rest easy in the knowledge that its architectural and cultural offering will remain protected for visitors to enjoy for years to come.
The city’s unique position, balancing so easily between the ancient and the contemporary, makes Prague an atmospheric, rewarding and memorable place to hold your hen do. And while drinking, clubbing and frolicking through the old town’s quaint narrow lanes and picturesque squares are all priorities that can easily be fulfilled in the Czech capital, an exploration into the medieval side of town is well worth your while.
Fondly known as the Golden City, or the city of a hundred spires, an easy way to get under the skin of Prague’s medieval past is to step back in time and take a stroll around the Old Town, soaking in its architectural marvels such as Prague Castle or the 14th century Old Town City Hall with its famous medieval Astronomical Clock from 1410.
An alternative way of seeing the city is by indulging in a river cruise along the beautiful Vltava River. From this exclusive perspective, you and your hen group can enjoy the marvels of Charles Bridge and The National Theatre all from the deck of your own private boat.
And while seeing the medieval is a great way to get to know the city while celebrating the bride-to-be’s last days of freedom, try getting into the spirit of the middle ages with an authentic Medieval Banquet or an Absinth Night where you can spend the evening of tasting one of the most ancient drinks still in existence.
From Paintballing to Trabant tours, whatever your tastes, interests or hobbies, spending your hen do in Prague is guaranteed to offer a wide variety of fun activities and eye opening experiences for everyone in your group.
