On the Old Town side of Charles Bridge, this Gothic tower built in 1373 is flanked by sculptures of St Vitus and Charles IV. Open to the public,it offers excellent views of the Old Town and the Vltava River to visitors who climb the narrow staircase. The tower once displayed the heads of twelve Protestant leaders executed in 1621, and was also the site of the final conflict of the Thirty Years War (1618-1648).

This is a beautiful gothic tower at the end of Charles Bridge. It's a beautiful piece of medieval art and architecture. The museum for Charles Bridge and the tour is next to it. You can pay to go into the tower.

The building and design of the bridge is outstanding. However if you choose to go in the middle of the day you will be should to should with people and there are a lot of stalls spread down the bridge. Well worth a visit though...More

Not something to go out of you way to see - for the size of Prague there actually isn't that much to do - anyone of normal intelligence will struggle to fill 2 days - plenty sleazy show bars to fill otherwise empty shops.

Millions of people walk under this tower and along the bridge, though few seem to notice you can go up the tower itself. The views from the top are very good and its great to be out of the crowds and looking down on them,...More

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
