Karlův most — Charles Bridge

The iconic Karlův most was built in 1357 under the guidance of Charles IV, and up to the 19th century it remained the only bridge connecting both sides of Prague. Take a stroll over the bridge and learn the names of the 30 saints whose statues stand sentinel there. Take some time to visit the Charles Bridge Museum close to the bridge itself. It is located in the several rooms of the original Crusaders hospital and Church of the Holy Spirit.

Do & See

The Czech capital is small and compact, with hospody (beer-houses) offering the world’s best beers stationed on every street corner. The most important areas are the central districts of the city: Staré Město (Old Town), Josefov, Nové Město (New Town), and Malá Strana (Lesser Town). These are best explored on foot.
