Create an itinerary including Charles Bridge
Step into the world of medieval Prague with a stroll across pedestrian-friendly Charles Bridge. Completed in 1402, the bridge replaced an older structure and became a major commercial link between eastern and western Europe. For nearly four centuries, this Gothic structure was also the only connection between the city's old town and the growing residential neighborhoods on the other side of the Vltava River. The bridge rests on 16 arches and spans 621 m (2,037 ft), featuring a continuous alley of 30 statues depicting saints venerated at the turn of the 18th century, when they became the structure's main decorative elements.

  • The one of the most favorite place in Prague! Those picturesque landscapes and cute little boats are highlights of my photos from the trip to Czech Republic. We visited the bridge three times and it looks very beautiful in daylight and at night. Don't forget to touch the special places on the sculptures, the dog for instance - it brings luck :))
