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.

It is truly a beautiful bridge. So much history, art and modern enthusiasm can be seen on that bridge. There are young artists trying to make a living, elder people sharing their culture and tourists just enjoying the view. It has a beautiful charisma to it. Due to many stories about the crime rate especially on the bridge I was a bit weary of it, and I kept holding my bag(I do suggest u carry a side bag with a zipper or a fanny pack). When you walk across the bridge there is a cute old town that you definitely must explore. They have great ice cream as well!
Impossible to miss this site while in Prague - which is good because it is well worth it. If you want it to yourself, go late at night, or early in the morning to enjoy the quite. But mid day there are musicians and artists and local artisans making it lively. The bridge is protected - so all people selling items on the bridge are locals and their work - not your standard tourist wares being sold. The walk is enjoyable. During our trip we crossed more than half a dozen times, during multiple times of day. Sometimes new to see on each crossing. Highly recommend.
Astrology, numerology, history... This bridge has it all. A little too crowded at peak times. The bridge towers provide an excellent vantage point for sunset picture taking... you may need to wrestle a few exchange students to get there.. however, if you manage to make it, you'll not regret it.
It is the most remarkable sight in Prague. It is a stone bridge, around 600 meters long and 10 meters wide. It connects the old town with the Lesser Quarter. It is decorated by a continous alley of 30 statues. You can find there many artists and people playing on musical instruments. A visit to Charles Bridge is a must.
The bridge is one the most iconic sites of Prague. The ancient architecture and the statues look magnificent. One gets an awesome view of the St.Vitus cathedral from the bridge, especially during sunset, since the sun sets behind the cathedral. We were lucky enough to see a purple sunset sky after it had rained one evening. The bridge is very lively the entire day with lots of hawkers selling interesting jewellery and souvenirs. One can also find various groups of people performing, using different kinds of musical instruments at any time somewhere on the bridge.
