It is a beautiful bridge, that you can enjoy from any other bridge or from the heights of the city. You do not need to get on it (even if there are nice statues). I recommend it in the morning or at night (beautiful sunset)

This bridge kept drawing me back! I love the statues along the sides and the view of the spires and the castle. The trip up the tower was worth it for the views as well. See the bridge in the daytime as well as at...More

The Charles Bridge is a national icon. A beautiful and old feat of engineering with ornate and detailed sculptures, beautifully intricate stone masonry (how did they get all the blocks and joints so accurate). Only spoiled by the hoards of people enjoying the stroll across...More

A great site in Prague is the Charles Bridge, but go early to avoid the crush as it gets very busy during the day and well into the evening. Suggest you get there before 9 am and it will be a little easier to get...More

The bridge is absolutely beautiful, it would have been nice to enjoy it without so many tourists. It was extremely crowded both days that we were there. I've been told to go early in the morning, but we never made it there that early. It...More

This bridge was exceptionally overcrowded- it seems to be the only one that everyone uses. What made it worse was the number of street stalls along, limiting the space even more. Even at 8am on a Sunday there were still a fair number of people...More

Beautiful bridge with gorgeous statues but too crowded to take nice photos. Walked it the first day then found alternative ways to get to Prague castle to beat crowd

I have seen it in so many films before and now I cant believe I am seeing it for real. I love all the mysterious statues and if it's dark you can see beautiful lights in the distance.

This bridge is very unique. Just a short walk to cross it over, totally worth it. Great views of the city.

Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled
underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the
Kings route taken by future kings on their way to
coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing
Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral.
Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque
medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch

on the city side of the bridge, if you walk right in a straight line it'll take you to the docks :) there's a ticket stand on the main road, on another bridge.

There is very little violent crime in Prague and overall it is safer than most large cities. However, there are petty crimes of opportunity. Be aware of your surroundings.. Don't flash large wads of cash. Keep a hand on... More
