The view from the Archibald Bridge is very stunning and beautiful on day time or at night. I enjoy watching sunset from the bridge, it is very romantic. During my visit, the bridge is always crowded, but i can still enjoy the interesting sclupt on each side of the bridge. However, some of them were under renovation.

Absolutely amazing attraction. Stunning views and stops all along the bridge with it's iconic religious icons and statues. Great walk on both sides of the bridge from Old Town to Lesser Town areas. Beautiful to photograph at many times of the day. Must see. The artisan vendors on the bridge are excellent for one of a kind souvenirs.

Fantastic statues on either side of this pedestrian bridge which connects to the old town. From the bridge you have great views of the river, the old town and the castle. Even better at night when everything is lit up. The bridge is full of tourists day and night and can get very crowded but is definitely an experience not... More

This is probably one of the most famous bridges in the world. If you are in Prag you will find it. Just walk following the crowd. Stop at every statue and take a deep look at them. I would recommend to visit the bridge also at night.

Thank Luis M
