This is a beautiful bridge but it can get so busy with tourists during the day that you miss the beauty of it. We were lucky to be staying right next door and went right when we woke up and it was completely empty. We...More

It's full of people. If you enjoy fighting the masses to make progress you will love walking across the bridge, which does offer fab views of the city, if one was not being so jostled to be able to enjoy them. It's a bridge with...More

Very old bridge with ancient statues. Music and artists abound although somewhat spoilt by the thousands of visitors thronging across.

Loved it but a little too crowded for my liking. Definitely worth a walk over but probably better early or late when there are less people.

Great pedestrian bridge and example of first class medieval artistry! Gets very crowded with tourists and street performers but lovely nonetheless

Fascinating statues all along the bridge with locals selling paintings and hand made trinkets. A few beggars with cap in hand which is sad to see. Beautiful at night.

Stunning views! The bridge is amazing and it’s a must visit if you are in Prague. It is always crowded but once you get there you’ll see why:)

A really nice place near the center of the city. Beware on the weekend it's full of tourist (obviously)! You can pay to visit the small (really small) exposition in the towers and you can also see the city and the bridge from the top!

We passed over bridge many times during our 4 day stay. Every time we saw something different in accordance with the weather, time of day. Lots of stalls and buskers added to the ambiance.

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

We didn't go the restaurant near Charles bridge. We ate Italian at Old town square because after 7pm and we didn't want go look for the restaurant. It's up to you what would you like at pub, traditional czeck food or Italian.

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.
