Charles Bridge I (Prague)

It is the oldest bridge in Prague and the second oldest bridge in Europe. The Charles Bridge is more than 500 meters long and ten meters wide. It has 30 statues and three bridge towers. The bridge is well worth visiting at night.

The two towers on the Lesser Quarter site originate from the 12th and the 15th century; the old city tower was built in the second half of the 14th century. Dealers, caricaturists, musicians, and puppet players are part of the picture of the Charles Bridge today. As in the past, the bridge still is a center of urban life. It has seen markets as well as knight's tournaments.
