Charles Bridge - Review
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 Tour Reviews
Wonderful to be here. Mind blowing view from the bridge. If you come here early morning it’s not rush. After 9 am it’s very rush, Especially in the evening time. Photographers love this place. They can discover a lot. It’s also a nice walk way. A must see attraction in Prague
A breathtaking sight in Prague. Definitely one of the most beautiful places I have visited in my life time. I recommend a morning trip here when the tourists are not as plentiful. The crowds can make this place feel like Disneyland. There are constant patrols of bands marching across the bridge and playing music, a couple little shops littered on the edges of the bridge and some of the most breathtaking views I have ever seen.
We saw many beautiful bridges in Europe, but Charles Bridge, that links the Old Town of Prague and Prague Castle is one of the most beautiful Bridges we saw. From the beautiful tower in the entrance to the end you will see many baroque style statues and others, that give a kind of mystic and medieval looking to this amazing architectural project. Walking in the Bridge you will find many artists as musicians, painting and specially paintings of the Bridge in different form, but basically everyone is looking for to buy the best picture of the Bridge without anybody walking there, we think its because its almost impossible to get a good shot during the day with all the tourists around. Eli: 5 / Serge: 5 Recommended: It’s totally worth to walk through this gothic / medieval Bridge and you will feel like going back on time.
Historical and beautiful monumental bridge. The art flows on this bridge. Walk on the bridge is enjoyable for anyone. I must mention that the surrounding area of the bridge and the bridge are the most happening places in Prague. All of that area is pretty much tourist friendly. One can witness some artist or other painting or dancing or singing or performing an art.
Mesmerising view of Prague from Charles bridge.. but always crowded.. you can enjoy a scrumptious ice cream while walking through the bridge . You can see ducks swimming in the water.. so many monuments of old golden days are elaborated in the bridge.. many artists are sitting in the bridge with their arts or ready to portrait you in half and hour. Good place for an evening stroll. After the bridge so many souvenir shops will welcome you..
