The Charles Bridge


The Charles Bridge is an Arch style bridge crossing the Vlatava .  Construction of the bridge began in 1357. It’s a commonly used bridge that I crossed countless times on my trip. It can get pretty packed depending on the time of the day, whenever I crossed it there were people around. In the day time there were artists selling their work or wares on the bridge and beggars with their caps out, heads to the ground.  The Charles Bridge has a beautiful view of the city.


Throughout the bridge are statues, some are touched for luck and you can tell from their golden color.


There are about 30 different statues on the bridge most of them Saints. A couple show the history of the bridge and of Prague, some baring treachery and drownings.


The Charles Bridge is located at  Karlův most, 110 00 Praha 1.
