Owner description: Connecting the Old town with Lesser Town, this popular pedestrian bridge is filled with musicians, painters, vendors and tourists during the summertime.
Reviewed 6 April 2018

This bridge seemed to be a source of pride for each local we encountered, and it is really a beautiful structure with lovely views. However, at almost all times of day it was so crowded with people that it was very difficult to enjoy. The large tour groups would frequently stop and block virtually the entire width of the bridge. By afternoon it was packed, and we were there in late March before the major crowds. It seemed like earlier in the morning it was a bit easier to appreciate the architecture, the views and the music.

Passed over the bridge many times during our 4 day stay in Prague. During the day, in the mornings, the views and sights from the bridge are beautiful - great for capturing some nice shots. The bridge isn't that crowded, but as the day turns to evening the bridge does get more people, all different types of people, vendors, artists, singers, etc.

It's a nice bridge, spend a few minutes on it.

This is one of the major attraction of Prague but I find it ok only it is very old bridge with statues on sides and various artists performing for tourists, multiple sketch artist on the bridge.
So get a good look from bridge and move forward.

The bridge is full of tourists most times of the day except very early morning - but this is a chance to really experience the ambience of Prague. Not to be missed
