The Charles Bridge is a sort after subject among us photographers who visit Prague. Its the Daddy of subjects! Getting it to yourself on the other hand could be tricky, you’re not the only one with a game plan.
The bridge was constructed in 1357 under the watchful eye of King Charles IV. The old bridge which connected the two parts of the city, built in 1158, was more than due for some repairs. It was severely damaged in a flood in 1342 which lead to its demolition and the construction of the new Charles Bridge, named after the King. The reason this bridge was always so important was that it connected the castle past of town to the city’s old town.
It’s a must, you have to walk through the Old Bridge Tower Gate, trust me you can’t miss it. The bridge is entirely cobbled and there are dozens of statues and statuaries in baroque and gothic styles along each side of the bridge, which by the way happens to be a thumping 10 meters wide! The statues depict various saints and patrons who were of great importance during the time of its construction. One end of the bridge meets the lesser Town, the other the Old.
My advice? Set your alarm, get there early morning, evenings are okay but lots of people still hang back for the Sunsets or that romantic moment, they’re not so keen with the early hours though. Here you will find your true photographers ready to go.Now… There is, for the best part, the ‘Photographers accord’
To the photographer who makes it their first makes his mark, the rest ‘usually’ follow suit and join him along side…usually! So if you’re travelling to there Czech Republic just for this shot, give your self a few chances, because sometimes it doesn’t always go according to plan! 3 nights should nail it.
