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.

  • Tourists are slowly returning to the city, the bridge was however not crowded at all, just happily busy. It is wonderful to see more people in Prague, lots of artists on the bridge, not too many...

  • Good pavement walking bridge with street musicians and chimeras statues. Worth climbing towers for panoramic views.
