Charles Bridge

The romantic Charles Bridge connects the Old Town to the Lesser Town. During first a few centuries it was called the Stone Bridge. Its construction, commissioned by Czech king and Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV, began in 1357. The construction was in charge by a Czech-German architect Petr Parléř (his another work is St. Vitus Cathedral at the Prague Castle). There are now 75 statues on Charles Bridge, but most are copies, as floods and catastrophes over the centuries damaged the originals. One of the most interesting, as well as the oldest, is that of John of Nepomuk (8th from the right as you cross towards Prague Castle).
