A medieval city bridge over the Vltava River and connecting the Old Town and the Small Country. Named after Emperor Charles IV. From the time it was built in the middle of the fourteenth century, the structure served to allow rulers to pass through it to their castle. Since 1974, the bridge has become pedestrian. Now it is a lively place where tourists walk, exhibit paintings of street artists and pass costume shows.

Along the Charles Bridge you can see 30 Baroque statues, almost all of which depict the most revered saints of the Czech Republic, although a few refer to biblical passages.
There are several ways to enjoy the Charles Bridge. The most obvious, easiest and cheapest is to walk from one side to the other. During the day, and especially in high season, it is absolutely packed with tourists, vendors and street performers, so to avoid the crowds we suggest arriving early or late in the day. Another way to enjoy it is to look for a good panoramic view at street level. There are viewpoints on both sides of the river that are perfect for taking photographs.
