Good place to start a walking tour

It's a bridge.... Not much else too it. But it's an easy walk to the castle, the clock and the pubs in the old town...so it's got that going for it.

Lovely Bridge with some great little Street sellers along each side. Wonderful views day and night but can get very busy and would recommend a little caution at night / all in all lovely.

We visited the Charles Bridge at night, and then again during the day. It is best to experience both times of day. At night, it's almost magical with the lights. During the day, you can appreciate the statues and views in more detail, and be sure to make your wish and say your prayer at Saint John.

Was a beautiful pedestrian bridge once. Unfortunately now is loaded with trinket dealers, which is typical of all of Old Prague. Hardly any room to walk. Beautiful from a distance though.

If you go to Prague you must walk across Charles Bridge. Stop in the middle and rub the brass and make a wish! If you go to the castle end there are some lovely restaurants and bars underneath the bridge, where there is a small tributary river where boats go along. Loads of swans too! Enjoy the history.

Took the no22 tram to Castle. Free entry to look around at leisure. Didnt pay for access to the castle etc as only had time to fit in a morning visit. Plenty to see for a full day and will definitely go back on my next visit. Walked back from Castle to Charles Bridge.

Still crowded with tourists in November, more reasonable weekdays. Nice view of Vlatana River. Too many souvenir peddlers on bridge table.

Bridge is Lovely, full of character. Lots of views to town and down river. however it is packed full of people and can be a challenge to navigate especially when your party comes though! Definite must do
