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.

It's a stunning place, very scenic and romantic but extremely crowded with tourists. The best time to go visit would be early morning or late night otherwise it's almost impossible to walk or take pictures. Bars, restaurants and facilities are nearby, it's suitable for people on wheelchair as well. Various street artist and painters performing on the bridge too. It is about 5 minutes walking from the astronomical clock
A must go!!! This bridge takes you across to a very quaint town. You can feed the swans and take great pictures. Really good restaurants and bakery shops. You can also find the John Lennon wall and pub. Very popular.
A beautiful bridge leading to the castle area. Plenty of artisan stalls to be found here and stunning photo opportunities. I doubt that you'll ever find a quiet time here, so just go and soak up the wonderful atmosphere.
Beautiful bridge to take a stroll on. You get a good view of the cathedral and castle on one side and the modern city in the other. There are lots of tourists here as well so you won't find much privacy. The statues on the bridge are quite artistic.
Beat the hordes and get up at dawn. It's surreal walking across with a dozen other people as the snow lightly falls. Truly a magical city and this bridge matches. Highly recommended!
