For over 700 years, this bridge was the only means of the river Vlata, making it an important connection between Prague Castle and the city’s Old Town. The bridge has seen quite a few historic events. The head of the leaders of the Hapburg revolt was hung from the old bridge tower in June 1621. During the Thirty Years War with the Swedes, most of the heavy fighting took place on the bridge. Many times in its history, the bridge had been nearly devastated by floods, prompting much restructuring work over the years including in the recent decade. There are over 30 statues on the bridge and each of them is really beautiful and has a story to tell. The bridge was commissioned by King Charles in the year 1357 and has been doing really well ever since.

Charles Bridge Reviews & Ratings
Pedestrian bridge,joining old town and new town Prague. Beautiful bridge with magnificent sculptures on parapets. Lovely ambiance and lots of very friendly visitors. Got there at night spectacular lighting,well worth seeing. After along day sight seeing, a spectacular ending. As we left the bridge, we happened on a pub The Irish Times, with live music and a great pints of Guinness, put the energy back in the old legs.
It's a beautiful bridge always packed with people. On a fine day, there's quite a beautiful view on both parts. Would recommend reading a bit of history before getting there. During the day there are artists along both sides of the bridge, which adds interest and an opportunity for a unique souvenir for the visitors. Needless to say, always care for your bag, especially when admiring the view and taking photos.
The most beautiful bridge in eastern Europe, perhaps throughout Europe, has not always been everywhere. The view is amazing! Take care of your pockets, dear ones, gypsies constantly rub on the bridge, wallets were taken from backpacks from acquaintances extremely skillfully in 2 seconds ... otherwise the impression is superb! If you go the other side further, there is a descent to the water, and there are very LOTS of swans, ducks, sometimes you can even meet a local otter! In general, such a mini contact zoo! Really nice place! I’m happy 😃
Take a leisurely stroll over the bridge and take in some stellar views of the city. It’s a popular tourist destination so be forewarned that it’s pretty busy at all times but highly worth checking out. They’re in the process of restoring a few of the statues on the bridge so some of them are blocked off from view while the complete their work. Lots of street vendors and caricature artists on the bridge as well. Overall a very enjoyable experience.
What a stunning place! It is so pretty with amazing views of all sides of the city and the river plus, all of the statues/architecture on the bridge itself are beautiful. Lots of talented artists, caricatures and souvenirs can be bought from local people as well.
