"Go Up (But don't JUMP) the Bridge Tower!" Charles Bridge Tower Tip by jumpingnorman

Charles Bridge Tower, Prague: 77 reviews and 156 photos

  Charles Bridge close to sunset, Prague
by jumpingnorman

When you are on the Charles bridge which crosses the Vtlava river, look out for the bridge tower that allows tourists to enter (for a fee) this exquisite gothic-style building. Two of the bridges are on the Lesser Quarter and one is on the Old Town side…

I forgot which one I went up to. But it is nice because you do get a nice view of the bridge from above – you have magnificent overlook of the Baroque-style 30 statues and statuaries from the 1700’s.

…and when you see pictures of Charles Bridge again the future, you smile and remember you went up the tower… and did not jump...
