    Prague's most stunning bridge spans 15"6 arches and is lined with 30 Baroque statues of religious figures. Make sure to rub the statue of St. John Nepomuk to ensure your return to Prague once again!

    Beautiful during the day and at night. I woke up early (~6am) and there were no tourists! Very serene, and the sunrise made the whole experience breathtaking.

    Don't just cross the bridge, go up to the tower. Quite some steps but worth it. The view of Charles Bridge stretched all the way to Castle is stunning! Oh, and it's free on 1st day of advent and on.

    Perhaps the most beautiful place in Europe, as romantic and mysterious as it can be. Specially perfect under the moonlight and during mist nights.

    Dear tourists, people actually sometimes use the bridge to go from one side to another... Try to keep that in mind...

    Amazing bridge, but during the day overly crowded. Best time is to go there early morning when the sun comes out. Great atmosphere and you'll see the true beauty of Prague. I promise.

    This is probably the "main attraction" of all of Prague (together with the Prague castle). It's a very lively bridge, filled with people, offering a great view over the river. 😊

    Wonderful architecture, nice look on Prague Castle. It is really crowded during the day, so if you prefer repose and relaxation come there early morning and enjoy! 😊

    A classic Prague sight. Suggest taking a stroll at different times of day. Quietest is early morning at sunrise (best photo opportunities) and busiest in the early evening.

    Prague's most famous bridge! It's so alive with people, performers, artists, musicians, and painters! An excellent spot to admire the river's beauty!

    These romantic photos with snow or sunset? - Forget about it. The bridge is jam packed with tourists & eagerly selling artists at all times. Climb the tower at the end (100CZK) and take a picture.

    Bridge has beautiful views on both sides. Visit in daytime and nighttime. Easily accessible by foot/stroller/wheelchair/skateboard/just crowd surf your way across! Everyone there is in a good mood.

    Scenic view of old town Prague. Magnificent bridge with statues and local artists selling their paintings. Souvenirs too. Avoid getting souvenirs from the starbucks side of the bridge. Cut throat.

    Very crowded but best to walk during early morning or evening at sunset. Tip: The blue & pink hour skies at that time paired with the light coming on the statues are unmissable for any photographer.

    A dreamlike view over the city and the castle. Especially at sunset, people crowd on the bridge to enjoy the view. Who is in the city should stop by and walk once over the bridge.

    It's always crowded with tourists but one of Prague's must-see. Very nice to stroll on a sunny day. And a beautiful view on both river banks. Take some bread for swans and ducks :)

    Definitely a sight you must see, but you probably want to bypass it on the weekends, because it's too crowded, and you can barely see anything. Quite fascinating.

    During the day there is too many people, but you MUST walk through this bridge on sunrise or sunset. 😍😍😍 Absolutely stunning. Below the bridge is market so check it out too.

    One of the oldest bridges in Europe. It is a nostalgic line from 14th century to modern-day and a kind of place you must see in Prague.

    Jim Phelps claims to have "a shadow" on the Charles Bridge and fakes his own murder before falling into the Vltava River in Mission: Impossible (1996). By the time Ethan gets there he's gone.

    Possibly no1 place to see in the city, with great history and art, very picturisque. Very crowded with a lot of tourists. Like the entrance gate to Hogwarts. So beautiful. Watch out pickpockets.

    Each day I've walked the bridge on my way to a different activity. Quite amazing. I highly suggest walking in the morning and late evening (less crowded). I walked at 3am, by myself, and felt safe :)

    Crossing the faltifa river by walking Charles Bridge makes you wanna imagine the old times people who constructed it at 5:31am on 9 July 1357 with the first stone being laid by Charles IV himself.

    This is a historical bridge that connects the Prague castle and the Old Town. Here, you'll see beautiuful baroque statues, as well as lots of talented artists and performers.

    Prague has completely sold out its authentic character, and traded it for the low-hanging fruit and easy gains of neoliberal enterprise.
