The Charles Bridge was constructed under the reign of Charles IV in 1357 and it is often considered to be one of the world's most striking examples of gothic architecture that are still in existence. During the day the bridge was busy......packed with tourists, artists, musicians, street-performers.....everyone seemed to be here! Having said that, ... more

I was in Prague in mid December 2009 visiting the Christmas markets and having a bit of a pre-holiday season break. I had two guidebooks, both of which highlighted the Charles Bridge as a point of interest and as a sight that must be visited while in Prague. To be honest, if you're planning to cross the Vltava River, which I'm sure any tourist would do at some point, then you're almost sure to see the Charles Bridge as it is undoubtedly the most famous and popular way to cross the river. We walked over the Charles Bridge when visiting the castle as it seemed fitting that we would be walking over the bridge which used to be the only construction that linked ...

If you ever visit Prague, it is inevitable that you will cross Charles Bridge (Karlov Most). I would recommend crossing it four times. Once in each direction at day, once in each direction at night. Charles Bridge is one of the greatest free attractions in any city in the world. Take your time and check out each of the statues along the way. Although I'm no expert, I'm told that they date back to the 1700s. As well as these statues, you will encounter various musicians and artists. One night, my wife and I stopped to listen to a man playing classical music on wine glasses. He was incredible. The bridge gets very busy at daytime and the crowding can make it a ...

Before I visited Prague I heard from a few people that Charles Bridge was certainly a 'must-see attraction' in Prague, but I should also be prepared for 'huge crowds' and being unable to move. I'm not too keen on crowds, but I did want to visit this famous bridge and decided I would just grin and bear it, whilst also securing all my belongings after hearing stories of pickpocketing. Thankfully on my visit to Prague at the end of June 2009 I discovered a less-than-packed Charles Bridge. I put this down to the weather, the whole 4 days I was in Prague it was raining and miserable, whilst this didn't bother me, it obviously kept many of the tourists ... Read the complete review

Me and my partner visited Prague for a 5 day holiday last year and it is such a magical place that I would recommend anyone going. The Charles Bridge in particular holds a special place in my heart since visiting and I can still remember the first time when I rounded the corner and saw the Charles Bridge standing there proudly displaying all its glory. The view before you walk onto the Charles Bridge is spectacular, overlooking the bridge, the castle and the river....one of the best views I've seen in the world. Walking onto Charles Bridge is amazing as you can sense the culture of Prague and the history of the bridge itself is outstanding. Old fashioned lamps and ... Read the complete review

I was lucky enough to visit Prague last year and as Colin & I arrived in March, it was about 12 below zero and snowing. Perfect! Charles Bridge was one of the highlights of our trip, especially because you seem to step on in one world, and when you reach the end you are in another. We headed on to the Bridge expecting just a bridge but it is full of culture, life, music, and artists. The Bridge has been used in many films over the last 10 years and i found it a really inspiring place to be. The bridge takes you from the Old Town to the Lesser Town. The Old Town is full of gothic arcitecture that can only be admired and then admired again. The ... Read the complete review
