If you are visiting Prague, you undoubtedly will be drawn to the Charles Bridge. The stunning stone bridge that spans the Vltava River was completed in 1402 and is one of the most-visited sites in the capital of the Czech Republic. There is good reason for that, too. Charles Bridge (you'll see signs in Prague directing you toward Karluv most) is flanked by large fortified towers on each bank, Lesser Town Bridge Towers and Old Town Bridge Tower. Strolling across from Old Town toward Lesser Town, you pass through the Gothic gateways, sharing the medieval bridge with buskers, artisans and hundreds of tourists. Charles Bridge features 30 statues of saints across its more than 500-meter span, and Prague Castle looms above Lesser Town.
