Charles Bridge

Local nameKarlův most
LocationPrague, Czechia

This 14-century bridge connects the Old Town with Lesser Town and the Prague Castle. With its length of 516 meters, solid Gothic stone construction and Baroque statues, it is probably the most famous sight in Prague.

There are many legends associated with this gem. One of them says that the construction started exactly at 5:31 am on July 9, 1357. That creates an interesting sequence of numbers (1357 9, 7 5:31) which – according to numerology – should make the bridge stronger. And there might be something about it if you realise how many severe floods there were and the bridge still stands proud, attracting millions of tourists every year.
