If you are visiting Prague you will surely be visiting the Charles Bridge, this statue is just before the bridge on the Old Town side. It is a very photogenic statue and well worth spending a little time to view.

This statue is located at the eastern entrance to Charle's Bridge. The statue itself is very intricate and beautiful and is, therefore, a great photo opportunity. This is especially true because the statue is adjacent to some attractive architecture and planting areas.

Prague is filled with remarkable buildings streets bridges and statues. The Karel 4th is one of the most impressive. Situated at the entrance to the Charles bridge and just beyond the square it's worth seeing along with pictures and people watching. Enjoy.

of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
