Step into the world of medieval Prague with a stroll across pedestrian-friendly Charles Bridge. Completed in 1402, the bridge replaced an older structure and became a major commercial link between eastern and western Europe. For nearly four centuries, this Gothic structure was also the only connection between the city's old town and the growing residential neighborhoods on the other side of the Vltava River. The bridge rests on 16 arches and spans 621 m (2,037 ft), featuring a continuous alley of 30 statues depicting saints venerated at the turn of the 18th century, when they became the structure's main decorative elements.

Charles bridge is very famous and those who visited Prague must visit this bridge, however it is overcrowded with too many tourists.the bridge is filled with many statues of Christ and have a good overview of the Prague castle. We went during the evening and have a good stroll, there are many street artists performance on this bridge as well. It is free entry and highly recommended.
