A fantastic bridge, the cobbles and statues along the wall are beautiful. There are stalls along the bridge which while quite nice, does force people in the centre - the bridge was very crowded at all times!

I just fell in love with the uniqueness and beauty of this bridge! I believe that this is one of the most visited tourist attraction in Prague. We went here in the afternoon and the bridge was packed with tourists. Maybe it is better to visit early in the morning.

Very worthwhile. The bridge is about 1,500 feet long, so a long walk, but interesting to watch the people and they had a bunch of very unique vendors on the bridge--artwork, jewelry, etc. There were some excellent shops on the other side of the bridge.

Yes, it was a famous sightseeing in Pragueand therefore very popular. But I'd highly recommend to visit it at night! No doubts it's very beutiful place but for very experienced tourists it may be not very specail. But not at night! :)) At night it's an absoulte fairy. You can enjoy all the Prague's light. Also if you're lucky you... More

Simply beautiful! Old and beautifully taken care of. A must-see if in Prague. Lots of artists on the bridge. Very nice to stop and watch them draw a pic of a person or people.

This bridge is always lively and you can spend hours just people watching and viewing Prague city from ether side of the river. A great opportunity to take take pictures on the bridge and I would recommend taking a walking tour to learn about the history of the bridge and Prague.

Lovely architecture and history with impressive towers at either end. Shame that the statues are being replaced due to pollution and replaced with replicas. Very crowded during the day but offers a lovely romantic stroll at night.

It is worth a visit but it is very crowded and that makes it hard to walk. It is also a bit touristy with artists doing cheap portraits but the natural beauty and history make up for it.

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
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.
