This is one of the highlights of visiting Prague. The bridge is popular with tourists and has people posing for pictures, artists busy drawing portraits, musicians strumming chords all in a days work. Keep at least 30 mins to spend time on this lovely bridge.

Charles Bridge is stunning a must on your list to visit. Don't forget to take a padlock with a message on which you fasten to the railings of the bridge.

Interesting gothic bridge with performers and entertainers! Incredibly busy and a pickpocket hot spot so watch your pockets!! A must see in Prague.

You actually don't see much of the bridge, just the pavement and sculptures on the edges of the bridge. But the unobstracted views are beautiful on both sides. Always very many people walking, very crowded - because of this not a very relaxting experience I would say. Nevertheless worth seeing to have a sense and view of old Prague.

Walked across after we had visited the castle, really impressive, little artist stalls, does get busy but worth the walk over back to old town square.

The Charles Bridge is celebrating its 660th birthday. The bridge connects the Old Town to the Lesser Town and is a wonderful walk, day or night. You get wonderful views of the river, Prague Castle and the beautiful buildings of the Old Town.

Really amazing. Take a moment to find out the history of the bridge to fully appreciate it. It is quite crowded but no more so than any other public place.

When you're in Prague you have to go see the Charles bridge scene of many movies like triple X and Mission impossible... Tremendous amount of history in the area walk across the bridge go up the hill to see St. Vitus Cathedral and Prague Castle If you're in Prague these two things you have to do

Such a beautiful bridge. The views are stunning. Lovely mix of caricature and portrait artists and lovely handmade jewellery. Busy on the weekends but well worth it!!!
