The Charles Bridge is no doubt one of the many highlights of Prague. It is beautiful and lined with statues. There are performers and street vendors. We crossed it a number of times on our visit and every time something else would catch my eye.
People gather to touch a statue for luck or stop to gaze at the river. Always crowded and because people stop at to look or take pictures it tends to be slow going crossing the bridge.
The history of and the stories of the building of the bridge are fascinating. Definitely google the bridge for more information because I just wouldn’t do the stories justice and I wouldn’t know where to begin or end with what to tell.
Here are some pictures:
