The Czech capital has two faces. On one hand, the city has numerous modern streets with trendy shops, and on the other hand it is not difficult to find streets that look as if currently we live in the 50s of the previous century. The center of Prague is divided into four quarters. The right bank of the Vltava River, which flows through the center of the city, is the location of two blocks - the Old Town (Staré Mesto) and the New Town (Nové Mesto) . The left bank of the river is the location of the Lesser Quarter (Malá Strana) and Hradcany . The famous Charles Bridge connects the two parts of the city.
The Charles Bridge is one of the most famous sights of Prague. Previously, the bridge was the entrance to the city, but today it connects all the historical places of interest in the city. The length of the bridge is 550 meters, its width is 10 meters and its height is 16 meters. You will see 42 stone sculptures along the bridge. They have been donated to the city by famous and influential people. It was a great honor to place a sculpture near the bridge, so not everyone could do this. Today, a huge number of vendors try to sell different trinkets to leisure tourists on the Charles Bridge. Here you can buy everything, from warm woolen jumpers to jewelry and cartoon portraits. It is possible that your walk across the Charles Bridge will be accompanied by music - numerous singers and street musicians have chosen this place as the venue for their performances.
