This is one memorable bridge. I have never seen anything like it, and I really enjoyed using the guide I had to read about each of the statues, and their meaning. The history of the bridge is impressive and I loved walking on it(many times). The tower on Stara Strana side provided really nice views.

“Fabulous views”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is a lovely bridge with a tower at each end. Lots of sculptures for numerous saints etc. some currently being repaired. Views are amazing from the bridge but very crowded with lovely stalls selling paintings and souveniers.

“Make it your first stop”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Get there as early as you can before the tours arrive or you will not see much of it. Boat Touts as you arrive and watch out crossing busy road beside it.

“One of the best attractions in Prague”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Historical place, the beautiful view to river and banks, a lot of monuments - and a lot of places, where you can take a photo.
Strongly recommend to climb on tower located before bridge - also the good viewpoint.
The thing which I did not like - many so-called "love-locks". They certainly spoil the view of monuments - in case I want to take a photo, I am not interested in such "devices". To tell the truth, I am shocked with people, who try to show everybody their love in such manner. In case you want to show your love, and want to inform people about it - OK, please choose less important attraction.
Also it would be better if Prague authorities clear Karluv Most from these locks.
On attached photos - examples of spoiled monuments.
