About Charles Bridge In Prague

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 is scene not to be missed.

      Vikash organized wonderfully for the trip. He was so patient and always available on phone for any questions. The way he explained the plans gave us confidence to move forward. We enjoyed our honeymoon at Mauritius very comfortably. Agents were very professional and were available all the time. The direct flight from Mauritius to Chennai got canceled by Air Mauritius forcing us to travel a day ahead of the plan. The airways service was very disappointing. Otherwise a perfect trip.

      We Travelled to 3 Countries i.e Croatia, Hungary, Czech Republic and trust me it was one of the most comfortable and managed trip i had ever gone and its all because of Our Destination Expert, Ms. Mayuri from Duniya Safari who was very quick and easy to approach.

      Our trip to Mauritius was well planned by the Timeless Trips team. The execution the plan and the communication could be a lot better. The hotels and airlines were arranged well. But when we missed one of our flights and tried to communicate with Timeless Trips, we had no response. Also one of our guides on shore for a tour had no clue of what he was meant to do and had no idea of what was going on. That being said it was a very economical and pleasant trip and we would use Timeless trips again when the need arises.

      Superb beach. There is a lot of variation(package). You should Negotiation with the agency. I made the mistake by trust his words. Always get 2-3 quote and compare it. First check with other sites/agency with the price offered. Also confirm the places and entrance fee is added in the package or not. Mauritius is expensive for flight ticket, All goods were imported from India and China. More over looks like India only. But it has crystal clear beach and good water sports activities. Good place to relax with peaceful mind.
