Charles Bridge, Prague: 413 reviews and 765 photos
King Charles IV's favourite architect and builder, Peter Parler, originally built the present day bridge. The initial idea was to build a functional construction for knight tournaments, and for many years the only decoration on the bridge was a simple crucifix. Later the Catholic desire for ornamentation resulted in 30 statues being built (1600-1800 AD).
There are towers at both ends of the bridge - the Old Town Bridge Tower on the Old Town side and the Lesser Town Bridge Towers on the Mala Strana side.
