"Charles Bridge...of death!" Prague Tourist Trap Tip by Bela_LUng

Prague Tourist Traps: 297 reviews and 180 photos

The charles bridge sure looks cool in a tourist guide. All those wacky statues, and vendors. Woot. Crazy stuff. However when you show up and see the same crap trinkets on sale everywhere and the bridge packed with people just standing there or getting in your way, well, you kinda feel like pulling out your Lonely Planet guide and punching it.

I found this to be a real bore. Who knows. You may like it. You may also like farting.

Unique Suggestions: DO weird stuff to freak out other tourists.

Fun Alternatives: Go to the giant Metronome you see in the distance. Old comunist era stuff. Represent.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
