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.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
