Are you planning to visit the Charles Bridge in Prague? See our information below!


Charles Bridge is one of Prague’s main attractions. The Charles Bridge crosses the river, the Vltava, and is the main link between the Old Town and the Malá Strana district.

Since 1683, the bridge has been characterised by several beautiful Gothic statues of holy figures on both sides of the bridge.
