– Malá Strana, Staré Město

Prague’s oldest bridge was built to replace the Judith Bridge that had been badly damaged by floods in 1342. The Stone, Bridge, called Charles Bridge since 1870, was begun in 1357 by Charles IV

and was completed in 1402. The bridge is built of sandstone blocks, flanked at each end by fortified towers (Lesser Town Bridge Towers, Old Town Bridge Tower). From 1683 to 1928, thirty statues of saints were carved to decorate the bridge, the most famous of which is the statue of St. John of Nepomuk.

The smaller tower is Romanesque, dating from the 12th century; its current Renaissance appearance dates to 1591. The late Gothic taller tower, from 1464, is based on the architecture of Parléř’s Old Town Bridge Tower. The central gate was built in the early 15th century. Opening hours: daily 10:00–22:00 (April to September), daily 10:00–20:00 (March and October) and daily 10:00–18:00 (November to February).
