Charles Bridge, Prague (Czech Republic)

St. Charles Bridge, Prague is one of the oldest bridges in Prague. It was built in 1357 by Charles IV. The construction of the bridge was led by a famous German-Czech architect named Peter Parler and it took half a century to build it. Formerly, the bridge was known as “Stone’ or “Prague”, but after 1870, it was called “Charles Bridge”. The Charles Bridge is supported by 15 pillars and is 13 meters tall, 9.5 meters wide and 516 meters long.  

Charles Bridges facts are somewhat distorted and many of the legends are still not confirmed. It is said that to strengthen the bridge, builders decided to add raw eggs into the mortar, although the fact is still not confirmed. Charles Bridge’s history also connects it with some urban myths. This part of Charles Bridge is interesting to those who love scary stories. One of the myths is that after John of Nepomuk’s tortured body was thrown down the bridge, an arch collapsed and every attempt to build it failed mysteriously.

There is another myth associated with St. Charles Bridge. It is said that the death penalty convicts were brought here to kneel under the bridge before they were executed. Some people swear that they have seen the cross; which was removed a long time ago; in their hardest times. It is a sign of tragic times that lay ahead.

There are almost 30 statues on Charles Bridge; most of them are baroque statues and statuaries. They depict various saints and patron saints venerated at that time but the most eye-catching ones are the Bohemian Sculptors.

Charles Bridge at night is one of the most gorgeous locations in Prague. The view of the sunset and the two halves of the city across the Vltava River, all lined with statues of Czech saints scene not to be missed.
