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 were 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, Prague Reviews - Write a Review
Ever since we arrived in Germany, my one goal was to be able to visit Prague and see Charles Bridge. It was crowded and a lot of people a trying to get photos everywhere. Still, you can always manage to find a spot to take good photos. Definitely walk it completely! There is a lot of stuff to see at both ends of the bridge. Always good when travelling to be aware of the change of currency. Have good walking shoes for there is a lot to see and the places are not exactly close to each other. For those out there wanting a photo of the whole bridge as I show here, just follow the street along side the river and you will find a spot. Enjoy Prague while you are there. There is tons to see.
Honestly a beautiful sight. It's beautiful to just walk along the bridge and see people perform all kinds of activities for money. There are bands that play instruments, souvenir shops, there are talented artists that can make you a portrait of yourself and this is just on the bridge itself. The areas around it are full of places where you can eat and there are street entertainers at almost every corner. The shops around base their profits on tourists so they all know English. There are two wax museums around aswell which are really worth stopping by. Overall I'd say the area gives plenty of sights to see, lots of interest points, plenty of food and a hell of a good time!
I split the difference between a 1 and 4-star review, leaning towards you, the visitor being smart enough to heed my advice. If you get there first thing in the morning, around 8-8:30, there are few crowds, great photo opportunities, no vendors blocking your photos, and stunning views. It was something I was glad to get to do. Arrive after that though, and it's shoulder to shoulder people and trinket vendors. You can't take photos and even at the ends, off the bridge you can barely move. It's like riding a cattle car (and about as pleasantly smelling). Arrive early and enjoy yourself.
Walking along the bridge was a truly an amazing experience! The statues along the bridge depicting the life of Christ is fascinating. A paradise for the art lovers! A lot of history and surreal architecture.. Classic Prague! Can get really crowded over the bridge.. definitely recommend an early morning visit!
Charles bridge beyond deserves it's glorious reputation. One can't help but feel a palpable sense of history as you walk and reflect on the statues that dot both sides. I recommend going early in the morning (easy for the jet lagged), you'll have the place to yourself and the sunrise is great. Be sure to check out the colorful locks (see picture).
