Who are we

Who are we and what do we do?

We are a historical fencing group called ,,Krkavci'' (means ,,Ravens'' in English but we do not translate our name) based in Prague, Czech Republic. Our goal is to reconstruct a hussite mercenary company from the beginning of the 15th century (1420-1440). We put an emphasis on the fighting skill of a medieval mercenary but we don't forget about camping, formation fighting and tactical procedures either. And even though fighting is what mercenaries does for living their life is more varied than that so our goal is also to portray their ordinary everyday life, work and entertainment. At the same time we want to get to know the art of long sword fencing in its duel form.

The group was founded in 2002 A.D. and its first commander was the still honoured and remembered Vladimír Kňažko. The second, third and fourth, no less successful commanders were Vladimír Nerandžič, Zbyněk Trajer and Mikoláš Havel. The current commander is Karel Murgaš. You can contact him via e-mail velitel@krkavci.cz. In the matters of website administration you can write to admin@krkavci.cz. The group has about twenty members.

In 2022, after 20 years, we decided to raise our existence to the next level by registering an association - Spolek historického šermu Krkavci.
