Charles Bridge (Karluv Most), Prague Overview

The historic Charles Bridge is yet another iconic structure of Prague receiving large number of tourists every year to cherish its craftsmanship.æ

Extending up to the length of 520 meters, Charles Bridge is one of the most famous bridges in Europe offering plenty of picture perfect views. Created in year 1357, it was built as a component of Charles IV's monumental building programme replacing the earlier Judita Bridge. Boasting of total 32 unique spots of interest, the bridge has been a focus of several superstitions such as the initial bridge stone being laid at precise time and date along with precise number of stones (135797531) in perfect alignment with the tomb of St. Vitus and the setting sun on the equinox gives the bridge extra strength. The highlight of the structure is its many impressive old statues, the most popular ones being Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV and that of John of Nepomuk (country's most revered saint), uncovered in 1683. It is believed that by rubbing the plaque at the base of the statue will grant ones wish. Other visually stunning point of the bridge is the view of River Vltava and spectacular Gothic gates. A stroll over Vltava during famous sunset is a breathtaking experience.æ
