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.

This is a great place to take in views of the river, but best to visit early in the morning before all the crowds arrive!!!! It’s close to the old town area which is full of tacky souvenir and touristy food places seeking sweets and cakes (those roll things) that aren’t even traditional !!! If I could rate Old Town I’d give it minus 1 star - do yourself a favour and stay away from that old area and visit other districts further away where you’ll get much more of a feel for Prague life !!
Great views, but extremely crowded as all the tourists, including us, want to see/cross the bridge. If you have a chance, avoid visiting during the weekend, as it is an incredible amount of people crossing the bridge and it will take you a lot longer to get across. We visited on a Thursday afternoon and could enjoy a nice walk over the bridge without bumping into too many people.
Very nice place but full of people. In the evening there are less people and easier to walk. Quite romantic place. A lot of statues of saints or some important religious people. It's a nice place to hold the hand of your lover.
Amazing place, by walking it you get transported far away to a remote time. You may take terrific pictures although will be hard to find it empty. Crowds flood it all time, avoid weekends. Better at night with dim light although it's just my opinion. Take your time to go along it and enjoy the views of the castle
Stunning! Get there around sunrise to get away from the masses. I’ve traveled a lot around the world and this was by far the busiest on a late Sunday afternoon. Going again the following morning right before sunrise was amazing!awesome!
