Karluv Most

Charles Bridge, Prague, Czech Republic

There is a legend that says you if you make a wish while touching one of the 30 statues on the Charles Bridge (or Karluv Most in Czech), it will come true. Unfortunately, I touched the wrong one. That’s ok though, it just gives me yet another reason to return to beautiful Prague.

Construction on the bridge began in 1357, and less than 40 years later poor St. John was thrown from it for not revealing the Queen’s confession to King Wenceslas IV. Today on the bridge though, you will see a lot of non-violent (and quite talented) artists and musicians selling paintings of the city and playing everything from classical music to Metallica.

Like most visitors, I traveled over the bridge many times during my visit, and even under it once or twice. With beautiful views of the Vltava River and the gorgeous architecture of both the Old Town and Prague Castle, I could have parked myself there for a full day just to take pictures.

  1. Every journey starts with the first step.

    It would be wrong to consider this blog as a first step though. Clearly this is the result of constant work towards showing us your view of the world, the view of a candid eye, dispaying for us, your grateful audience, your unique perspective.

    I celebrate your drive, your sensitivity, and the way this little place online allows us into it…

    Cheers!
