I walked five times in Prague on the Charles Bridge
, and you didn't read it wrong. When I came to Prague, I didnt dare to say that I had been to Prague without going through the Charles Bridge for a few times!
The Charles Bridge is the only way for the Czech kings to crown the parade. It is also a must-see for tourists to visit Prague. From the morning to the evening, there are pedestrians on the bridge. Some of the scenic bridges are also locals who are selling or setting up stalls on the bridge. These are more in the afternoon, and after a few trips I found that there is a uncle who feeds the pigeons every day. Here, it may be that this way to make some change.
There are 30 statues of the saints on the Charles Bridge, each with a touching story. However, now, some of the statue's heads have become the landing area for the seagulls, so it is inadvertently dyed white... I like to walk the Charles Bridge in two hours, when the sun sets, this time is not only the scenery on the bridge. Beautiful, the Prague Castle in the distance is also very comfortable against the backdrop of the setting sun. The other time is evening, the visitors will be slightly less, and the dark lights on both sides of the bridge will give you a sense of tranquility that is different from the daytime.
Of course, there is also a way to board the bridge at both ends of the bridge, and you can look around 360 degrees not only the Charles Bridge, but also the old town of Prague.
In the heart of Prague's city, there is a river, the longest Vltava River in the Czech Republic, which divides the city into two and gradually disappears into the wilderness of the distance. There are 18 bridges on the Vltava River in Prague, the most famous being the Charles Bridge.
Many people fell in love with Prague because of the Charles Bridge, and even had the idea of "going to Prague on the Charles Bridge nine times." The
Charles Bridge is built with stone and stone. It is the most artistic stone bridge of the 14th century. The two ends of the bridge connect Prague Castle and the Old Town. It is the only way for the kings to crown the parade. .
The street performers with a lot of performances on the Charles Bridge. After my friend circle Po took the picture above, a friend immediately recognized that they were there when she came to Prague a few years ago.
At 8:30 in the morning, there are no tourists along the river. After all, the tour group has not yet appeared. The weather is still very strong. Looking at the old castle opposite, the outline is so clear, the colored red tile houses are set against the blue sky. It is the look of a fairy tale. The Charles Bridge is the first bridge built by the Prague people on the Vltava River and has a history of 650 years. The Charles Bridge was built in 1357 and completed in 1400, spanning the Vltava River in Prague. The bridge was built in accordance with the life of King Charles IV of the Czech Republic, hence the name Charles Bridge. Charles Bridge is based on the Roman Angel Bridge and is a perfect combination of Gothic bridge art and Baroque sculpture art. At the entrance of one end of the bridge stands the statue of Charles IV, with Gothic gates with baroque reliefs on either side. There are 30 statues on the stone railings on both sides of the bridge. They are Catholic saints and protectors. They are shaped like goddesses, samurai, human face and animal face. The Legion Bridge next to the Charles Bridge, under the bridge is a small island of rivers, which is the location of the wedding photos of Jay Chou, almost no tourists will go down the bridge, more local residents in this morning exercise or picnic party.
Two times to the Charles Bridge, they were all dumped by the same scenery: the Prague Castle and the red-top building under the clear sky and the Vltava River shine!
There is a saying in the folks that it is only after passing the Charles Bridge 9 times that it has been to Prague! In order to find the best position, I dont know how many times I went back and forth. I found that the scenery I saw on the Charles Bridge was really different!
There are 30 statues of the saints on the Charles Bridge, all from the masterpieces of the Baroque masters of the Czech Republic from the 17th to the 18th century. They are called European Open Baroque Statue Gallery by Europeans. The most famous is the 8th statue of St. John on the right side of the bridge. When passing through his statue, people will touch the relief of St. John on the pier and pray for themselves.
There is a bridge in the river, there is a story in the bridge, and the Charles Bridge is such a bridge full of stories...
1934, lying quietly in Vienna Kafka in the suburban sanatorium asked his friends to write down the last sentence of his life: "My life and inspiration are all from the great Charles Bridge."

Charles Bridge is one of 18 bridges built in Prague over the Vltava River. It connects Old Town with smaller villages in Prague. It was also the path of the coronation parades for Czech royalty. The bridge is a sort of an open art palace, with an avenue of 30 baroque statues and statuaries. The statues were constructed by Bohemian masters between 1683 and 1714, but were replaced by replicas and are preserved in the National Museum. It is often said that one has not truly seen Prague until they have visited the bridge.
