  • River Vltava that connects Old Town with Holesovice. Architectural masterpiece decorated with beautiful sculptures and statues. Towering columns "gold" at the beginning. Below you can access the boats for a river tour.

  • Prague has 18 bridges over the Vltava River. This is the shortest, but it has its charm and great views of the city. It has the advantage that it is much less traveled for tourism and with peace of mind can contemplate the river or photograph the Castle. You can visit it to walk out of the Jewish quarter that joins the base of the Park of the metronome. Just before you get to the bridge you can get off and walk on the banks of the river where moored boats and is full of swans and seagulls. A good escape from the hustle and bustle for photos and rest.

  • This is not the famous Charles Bridge. This one is heavily used by car traffic. It's a nice site when you are on your way to or from something of greater interest, but not a destination site in itself. It's provides a view of the huge Prague metronome that took the place of the giant Stalin statue after he fell out of faver.
  • One of the nice bridges of Praque..it dates back a long way like 16th centruy or more i think..its used by regular traffic..you can enjoy a nice view at night time
  • Downstream the river this is the tenth bridge in Prague. It is the only such a large Art Nouveau bridge in the country thanks to which it has a status of a protected technical monument. Th width of 16 meters and a length of 169 meters make it the shortest bridge in Prague. The bridge was built between 1905 - 1908, designed by engineers George Soukup, Vaclav Trča, Francis Mencl and architect Jan Koula. The construction of the bridge coincided with the clearance of the Jewish Quarter and should have been part of the never realized route from Wenceslas Square through Old Town Square, Parizska street and Letna to Prague Castle. The Čech Bridge is most notable thanks to is art decoration. On the glazed iron lanterns on the tops of the columns there are 4 bronze sculptures by Antonín Popp. On the pillar headers there are bronze statues of torchbearers and six-head creatures with Prague coat of arms. The pillars were decorated with festoons of bronze and granite. Apart from the time between the years 1940 to 1945, when the bridge was renamed to the Mendel Bridge, it has always held the name of a Czech writer Svatopluk Čech.
  • Karlsbrücke - a must if you visit Prague. Beautiful view
  • One of the oldest Bridge in the world. Way back in 15th Century.
