Prague is beautiful at night especially looking to the castle area with its brilliant illumination. One of the best points to view this is from Charles Bridge. The bridge itself has many interesting statues.

Over crowded but a lot to look at and keep you entertained. Keep an eye out on the views, the attractions on the the bridge and what is over the walls.

It may be a famous bridge to just walk once and that's it. Filled with tourists. Do note that the statues you see are not originals. Best time to avoid the massive crowd is walk at 7:30am or 8am where the crowd is lesser as see in the pix, and then you can enjoy your breakfast at Cafe Savoy across... More

View should be seen at different times of the day. Full sunlight, then twilight puts a different perspective on the scene.

The kids and I looked forward to our walk across the bridge all week. Even on a cool rainy morning the bridge was enchanting and a beautiful stop on our agenda.

Walking along the Charles bridge is definitely a must when in Prague. You get an absolutely stunning view of the castle from the bridge and the view from the top of the Charles bridge is more than worth 90czk. Extremely busy and you'll probably get bumped into, but other than that it was nice. Although we did go midday so... More

This is an old bridge and is one of the only bridges for pedestrians only. There are a number of little stalls selling various items, including, pictures, jewellery and gifts. There are a number of statues along the bridge and is worth taking your camera with you. A convenient way to get to Prague Castle.

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
