The Charles Bridge is THE must-see of all of the Prague must-sees! It is so iconic and medieval! If you want arts and crafts or a watercolor, this is also the place to look. I suggest walking it different times of the day, too, and,...More

It's a must do when in Prague- just try and go early or late or for sure not a weekend. Don't buy from the vendors but do enjoy the statues and the river and view of the city. Climb the watchtower- that is worth it...More

Best viewed from the side rather than going over it. We could see buskers entertaining the masses when we stood by the river.

The Charles Bridge spans the Vitava River. Construction began in the mid-1300's and was the only way to span the river until the mid-19th century. It is wide, car-free and provides breath-taking views of the city. During the day there are vendors and street performers....More

Strolling on the bridge is a fun way to see the city from both sides. We also went up the tower for 100 kr. Enjoyed the view and a little history. There are musicians, vendors (bought a lovely wood carving made by Marek Bellohlavek)

We grabbed the subway and arrived a couple blocks away from the Charles Bridge and walked 3-4 blocks to it at 9 am. It was extremely busy at the entrance with all the photo takers especially selfies. The bridge is quite large and the vendors...More

Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled
underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the
Kings route taken by future kings on their way to
coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing
Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral.
Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque
medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch

on the city side of the bridge, if you walk right in a straight line it'll take you to the docks :) there's a ticket stand on the main road, on another bridge.

There is very little violent crime in Prague and overall it is safer than most large cities. However, there are petty crimes of opportunity. Be aware of your surroundings.. Don't flash large wads of cash. Keep a hand on... More
