Prague to Paris_Prague 1

 

The Charles Bridge

The Charles Bridge is a stone Gothic bridge that connects the Old Town and Lesser Town (Malá Strana). It was called the Stone Bridge (Kamenný most) during its first several centuries.

Its construction was commissioned by Czech king and Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV and began in 1357. In charge of the construction was architect Petr Parléř whose other works include the St. Vitus Cathedral at the Prague Castle.

Taken this morning at 5am through to sunrise …. The best and most beautiful time to walk the quiet deserted streets of Prague. A time to reflect and capture the mood of this unique city.

The bridge further on is the Most Legii: Bridge of the Legions
