Charles Bridge is a 14th century stone bridge linking the two sides of Prague. Not only is this magnificent structure one of the city’s finest attractions, it is also the main pedestrian route connecting the Old Town with Mala Strana, and onto Prague Castle. The entrance to Charles Bridge is marked at both ends by towers: the Old Town Bridge Tower and the Mala Strana Bridge Tower.
