Great bridge - always full of tourists though but there's still space to move. Lots of cool statues and good views of the city. The towers on either side don't offer much more than views but the prices of admission are cheap. Definitely go this way when you're on your way to the castle.

I have heated and read so much about the Charles bridge, and when I got a chance to see that , was speechless! Truly a gothic architecture, and all the sculptures were very well preserved. The river looks majestic from the bridge, and so is the area on the either side . So many souvenir shops, restaurants and museums nearby.... More
