This pedestrian bridge is the oldest in Prague that connects two parts of historic Prague: the Lesser Side and the Old Town. Resting on 16 arches, it is almost 10 meters wide and 516 meters long. There are beautiful towers guarding both ends of the bridge, as well as 30 Baroque statues of saints and sculptural groups dating back to the 18th century.

Originally the seat of Czech royalty and nobility, today the castle is the residence of the Czech President. On three sides of the palace, visitors will find a number of galleries and gardens, as well as a museum that will surely delight you. This impressive complex was built over the space of 10 centuries and has much to offer its visitors: a cathedral (St. Vitus), a chapel, many wings of palaces, a convent and several fortification towers to name but a few.
