One thing you can’t miss when you’re in Prague is Charles Bridge.
I mean literally, you CAN’T miss it since it’s such a central part of the city connecting Staré Město and Malá Strana over the river Vltava. The bridge was built in 1357 (moment to process that, please!) and is still used every day. Everyone that knows me, know that I’m a huge sucker for old architecture, and I just adored this bridge.
We crossed Charles Bridge every day during our five days stay in Prague, and I think it’s one of the most visited places (and the most famous tourist attraction) in Prague, meaning a lot of people in motion all of the time. I don’t like it when historical places get touristy and crowded and decided to head out to the bridge at 6 am one morning with my dad and we experienced the bridge a lot more majestic than during the day. If it’s unclear, the two pictures above are captured at 6 am, and the pictures below are captured sometime during the day. Just a smaaaaall difference in the number of people 😉
