"Crossing the Vltava in style" Charles Bridge Tip by chbuchie
Charles Bridge, Prague: 413 reviews and 765 photos
The Charles Bridge is by far the most well known site of Prague, connecting the mala strana and the old town.
The bridge is nicely decorated with large statues , representing important persons , mostly religious and were added over the years, most of them are copies though whereas the originals are stored in the national museum.
Until 1754this was actually the only bridge over the Vltava. Its construction was allowed by Charles IV in 1357 and not until 1683 was it decorated by its first statue.
Day & night , from far away or on top of it this bridge looks great and is car free.
Yet best to cross it as early as possible unless you wanna warm up in a touristic crowd.
