Lovely views but it is only a bridge. Packed full of slow moving tourists and vendors! Would suggest viewing from much quieter neighbouring bridges to actually view it. Look out for a row of yellow penguins on a jetty! We liked these they made us smile!

All the statues are reproductions, often crowded with tourist, and interesting crafts and arts for sale on the bridge. The licenses for the artists on the bridge pay for security to keep the crowds safe. The licenses are limited providing more space for the people who cross the bridge.

The most delightful part of this city is the center of the bridge. It has world class views and world class thieves, one of whom got me good. Be careful !

We walked this during the day, enjoyed the views, and the vendors. Then at night we took a river cruise, and enjoyed seeing it all lit up.

Spend a little extra and go up the bridge tower. The views at the top are worth it. If you're looking for a time when this place is less crowded, don't bother. It's NEVER going to be less crowded.

Great bridge to visit and walk across for the views and photos ...Beware it's very crowded so I would suggest going early in the morning to beat the crowds say 9 am. take note of the statues as they are interesting and I was toldd by a local that they are to be cleaned up soon....

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
