Crusader Square

4.2/527 Reviews
73 mi from Dresden, Prague
"Standing on the Manesuv most, the oldest stone bridge in Europe—Charles Bridge is fully presented in front of you. The 16 piers are 520 meters long and 10 meters wide, like a gray-black dragon lying on the sparkling Volt. On the Tava River, the Red Star Cross Knights Řád křižovníků s červenou hvězdou monastery on the left and the Kafka Museum on the right are separated on both sides of the river bank. There is a waterway in the middle and a cruise ship shuttles between them. Swans and a leisurely fisherman in the shallow bay. , The print complements each other in the clear water and green mountains. Follow the tramway along the bluestone road all the way to the south, and soon arrive at the Crusader Square Kostel svateho Frantiska z Assisi, whose name is derived from the Red Star Cross Monastery on the north side of the square. Just like other towns in Europe, this is an ultra-mini small square, which does not have the grandeur of the country. In the center of the square stands a bronze statue of the greatest Czech, Charles Karlova IV (1316-1378). Charles IV, as King of Germany and Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, was the builder and Charles of Prague during the most powerful period of the Czech Republic in the Middle Ages The founder of the university. The statue holding the golden edict was created in 1848 by the sculptor Ernst Hahne from Dresden to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the founding of Charles University. The four statues below represent the Fourth Academy of Theology, Philosophy, Law and Medicine at the time of the establishment. On the right hand side of the square is the Hussite church-St. Nicholas Church Kostel sv. Mikulase. It was first built in the 13th century and changed to Baroque in the 18th century. It was built by the famous Baroque architect Dinsenho at the time. Kilián Ignác Dienzenhofer was responsible for the design. The exterior of the church is very eye-catching. The snow-white building with a bronze roof resembles St. Martin’s Church in London. After nightfall, the lights are lit up. Once transformed, it has become one of the places where Prague citizens enjoy classical music."
