Charles Bridge (Karluv Most)

Even when it's groaning under the weight of sketch artists, jazz musicians, trinkets and tourists, there's no resisting the charm of the Charles Bridge (Karluv Most in Czech). Its 1,640 feet (500 meters) link Prague's Old Town with Castle Hill and provide some of the best views of the city and the graceful River Vltava. Built in the 15th century, the bridge was added to replace the older Judith Bridge, which had been swept away by floods.

The Charles Bridge (originally called the Stone Bridge until the 19th century) has proved remarkably resilient since; some say it's down to the eggs mixed into its mortar. Notable features include its rows of blackened baroque saints, each attended to by angels, lions and followers. The statues emerging from the mists of a Prague dawn is one of the loveliest sights of the city. And if you want to make sure you come back to Prague, touch the St John of Nepomuk statue (he was martyred by being thrown from the bridge into the river). It's supposed to bring good luck, too.

Practical Info

The Charles Bridge links the Old Town and Castle Hill over the river Vltava.
