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.

    • Trip to Europe

      We went to Eastern Europe cities Berlin, Prague, Vienna and Budapest in the first half of August. The tour was arranged and managed by Holiday Aces. It was a great experience and we enjoyed every moment of our vacation. The Operation Team of Holiday Aces did a good job especially Meenu Goyal, Amit Rajput and Sumit. They made a Whattsapp group and answered our queries in time. The hotels are good but far from city centre. I would suggest to provide hotels near to city centres to Indian travelers, who are going first time to Europe orother places so that they could reach historical places easily.

      Great experience. We hadn't heard about travel masterz before i got their quote via travel triangle. Our trip was of 9 days to 3 cities, Budapest, Prague and Vienna. The entire experience was simply amazing because of Arpita, Amit and the rest of travel masterz team. They were always there for us, always available via whatsapp and checking constantly if all is well. For everything from the intial planning to the final landing they were with us. Many many thanks to team travel masterz and my very best wishes.

    • Trip to New Zealand

      The support from Kusum and her team was great. Right from the hotel / flight vouchers, intra city travel to visa assistance and forex, everything was smooth. They were always available throughout and were giving us daily updates on our itinerary. The only thing I felt could have been slightly better is the itinerary. While it was a short trip of 7 days to Zurich, Salzburg and Prague; few things in the itinerary were jam packed and were not feasible to do. Otherwise no complaints, was very happy with Centaur vacations. One word of caution to fellow travellers to Europe, it was hot and sultry in europe and the hotels don't have ACs there so please book accordingly.

    • Trip to Europe

      Overall it was an excellent tour of Vienna, Budapest and Prague. Some point of improvement for the agent or things which can be taken care by new travelers... 1. Searching for cab driver after landing at the Vienna airport was tough. 2.Rooms of Ramada encore in Vienna and IBIS in Budapest were very small. 3. There was no electric water heating machine ( used for tea/coffee) in IBIS-Budapest and Fortuna west-Prague, so it was little problem for us. 4. Fortune-West hotel in Prague was far away from the main city. 5.We should have been informed that exchange price in India is best as compared to European countries. Excellent response time, proactive and very professional. Special Appreciation to Agent- Daman, who designed my entire itinerary and made all the bookings
