Stroll down while looking at statues and beautiful views. This is the place you want to take pics and stroll slowly. Music feels the air by local great orchestra artists!

It is really impressive bridge so beautiful and old the only things is that it was so crowded of tourist in the afternoon that you feel like in a tubes in rush hours and it made it difficult to make photos and appreciate the architecture. It is a masterpiece but I will advise as locales do, to go before 9... More

The history of this bridge is brilliant, just looks like a tourist attraction now but what a bridge, very easy to waste an hour getting across.

This is another highlight of visiting Prague - you have to walk across its full length to appreciate the views from both sides of the river.

The best of 14th century craftsmanship is on displat with this spectacular bridge. Once in the middle, you get some spectacular views of the caste, the president's home, amazing river views transporting you back in time. My advice is to go early morning to experience it best-- once it is afternoon, all of the tourists from the castle wander down... More

Nice view with touristy people. Worth to walk through - once. Keep hold of your bag and reserve a lot of time. Good walk to the other side of the river though, might find some good dining places and a nice ride to the top of the hill. Lots of artists and musicians.

Charles Bridge is one thing you have to do whilst in Pagie. Chances are you will want to cross the river so why not take the pedestrian only route. In the day time it has a bunch of painters etc. touting their wares and at night offers a great view of the illuminated castle. What more can be said about... More

Everyone going t Prague needs to go and walk across the Charles bridge. It is rich in history and has a number of significant statues on it and one is good luck to touch and another means you will return to Prague if you touch it. You can climb the towers of the bridge and you get an excellent view... More
