Prague: Crossing Charles Bridge

Charles Bridge, which dates back to 1357, spans the Vltava River. So much I learned from books.

It's cobbled, pedestrianised and features a number of religious, historical and downright disturbing statues which Steve was very drawn to.

  2. I went to Prague a few years ago, and loved it! The Charles Bridge is stunning (although a shame about all the merchants flogging their wares everywhere, but it's always the same in touristy places!) x

  3. Yeah - there were only a handful when we were there; perhaps the snow drove them away? It was beautiful, though.

  5. Prague is definitely on my travel list, I've actually been checking Ryanair for cheap flights out of Edinburgh lately, I don't care where I go, I just want to go away. These photos are beautiful, those statues behind the bars are quite scary looking xo

  6. I know that feeling! If I was in Edinburgh (know anyone who needs a copywriter?!) I'd be taking advantage of all the cheap flights!
