The most famous bridge
in Central Europe
Karlův most aka Charles Bridge28
Why locals love it
There are so many tourists that you will spend at least 10 minutes to cross this 515 meters long bridge built in the 14th (!) century. If you are not in hurry, you will definitely enjoy the view on the Prague Castle or the river Vltava. There are many street performers and the atmosphere (if it is not too crowded) is nice.
Why you should visit it
This stone bridge is (if you, again, forget about other tourists) really romantic, although the history of the bridge itself might be slightly frightening. For the reconstruction were used tombs of the proffesors of one cancelled college in Prague (17th century). From the same century come also the most of the statues, except of 3 originals.
There is also a statue of vickar Johan from Pomuk showing how he was thrown into the water from the bridge. Touch it for your luck. Not the dog!
