Not to be missed!

A spot in Prague not to be missed!!!

Amazing place for its location, the view, the atmosphere... If you like taking pictures of your trips, this is one of the most amazing points. You can have in one side the Castle, bridges, mountain, forest... obviously the river and more bridges in both sides of the Bridge, and then in the other side you can see the old town behind you, the cupulas, churches, etc.

Really nice atmosphere with excellent painters, live traditional czech music, people walking aroung... Lovely place.

Worthy to be visiting both during the day and during the evening/night to enjoy the lovely views.

A Must Do!

Charles Bridge connects Old Town to Lesser Town and is a pedestrian bridge with street musicians, artists, and vendors. The Statutes on the bridge are beautiful and the the history of the bridge and the statutes is very interesting. Be sure to walk across the bridge as part of a tour or with a guide that can share all of the history of the bridge and its statutes with you as you cross.

The most famous place in town.
Oct 2021
Prague without walking the Charles Bridge would be missing the biggest tourist attraction . And it is worth it. There is a lot of history behind it. It connects the "old Town" with the area below the Palace complex. The view of the river and the Palace hill is spectacular by day and night.

Don't Miss Walking over the Vlatava River on the Charles Bridge!
Oct 2021
I LOVED walking across this iconic bridge. The details of all of the statues along the bridge is amazing. The bridge crosses over the Vltava River which runs through the Czech Republic. There were some venders selling their crafts on the bridge, but they did not yell out or hawk their wares. There were several excellent painters. I enjoyed hearing about the statues. Probably the one that will stick with me is the statue of St. John of Nemuchuk. Our guide told us the story of his demise. Fascinating! This is a totally free experience. I would like to go back and check out some of the statues and venders more in depth since we were there as a small group. The Czech people are very proud ot the Bridge. The bridge is named after King Charles the 4th.

The must-see of the town.

DO NOT FORGET THIS MONUMENT.

It is totally worth it. You have a nice view of Vltava river with alll these ducks and swans and a nice view of the illuminated castle.

It is worth seeing the bridge also at night. But, it is really windy and cold over there.

It is always crowded and you can purchase engraving-gravure from the street sellers.

This is a very atmospheric bridge. It's bustling with life, lots of artists selling portraits and caricatures, lots of history as you walk across and the lucky statue you must touch!

Very enjoyable walking across this long bridge,
with the wonderful, medieval sculptures, and
the street musicians, and the artists displaying
their work. An amazing experience. And it’s free.
