Really crowded but really interesting.

Great view of Prague Castle and the city. Great place to people watch as well. Oldest bridge in the city, was partially destroyed by flood.

Charles Bridge is THE beautiful and old bridge. (One of the major attractions in Prague) Only pedestrians are allowed on this amazing old architectural beauty. On both sides of the bridge you will find artists displaying their paintings. One gets a perfect view to both sides of the city with the river. Night time view gives a brilliant view of... More

Cross the bridge with a good guide or guidebook so you can learn more about the significance of the many statues. There are crowds of people crossing every day. It is surely one of the most beautiful bridges in Europe.

The statues along the bridge have very interesting historical tales. Be sure to read up about the bridge and its history to make the most of a walk along it.

The bridge is amazing the statues, you can actually feel the history as you walk across it. Especially sunset is a must especially for couples. You have can have the castle in the background with lights stunning

Definitely one of the coolest spots in Praha. Especially neat at night. Both sides of the bridge offer some photo opportunities.

I crossed the bridge three times. The best was at 8am on a morning run. Virtually empty, lovely views as sun came up and well worth getting out of bed for. Second was at night which was very romantic. I'd avoid normal daylight hours. Too touristy.

This bridge leads you to the Prague Castle District, but wait! Do not cross it in a hurry! Spending time just lounging around is great, whether to take in the riverside view or just to take pictures. There were several street side artists drawing portraits and selling their artworks, also some musicians who were playing classical music too. Though when... More
