Charles Bridge is a historic and an important bridge in Prague connecting Prague Castle and the Old Town…it crosses the River Vltava (Moldau). The bridge is full of people crossing by, taking photos and buying souvenirs as the stretch is full of portrait artists, craft sellers, street performers, locals and of course, tourists. The gothic bridge is also lined by statues as old as 1683 and done mostly by known Bohemian sculptors Matthias Braun and Jan Brokoff.
From the bridge, the River Moldau can be admired and enjoyed – bordered by apartments with their charming red and orange roofs, paddleboats, ships and fishing boats passing by add extra attraction.
This restaurant by the riverside caught my attention. At the farther right is the Kafka Museum which I missed visiting. 🙁 Hubby and I spent a considerable amount of time to see the Dancing House…
At the other end is the bridge tower on the side of Malá Strana (Little Side). This part is another charming area which I will feature in the next posts.

Looks like a bridge that I won’t mind crossing given the chance. The bridge entrance/gate is really something. I imagine that could be the guard’s quarters back in the early days.

thanks for joining!
majestic views and beautiful pictures Sis. Thank you for sharing it with us. Dropping some love for Tuesdays Travel, hope that you can visit me back too
We took our teen there for his 16th birthday and he just loved it. Your pictures are great, and you’re right, Prague is a wonderful city to visit. I wish we’d have gotten to go to Vienna…we opted for Frankfurt, Germany instead, and only had time for two places. I’d love to go back and see Vienna. One of my friends went last Dec. and said it was THE coldest place she’s ever been in her life. 🙂 But she loved it…
Prague looks like a modernized old city…the houses, bridges seemed old but still very strong…
