Staroměstská (METRO A; TRAM 17, 18, 27, 53)
In the past it was also called the Stone Bridge and its construction was commissioned in 1357 by Czech king and Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV. Many famous legends are connected with the construction of the bridge, one of them is that egg yolks were included in the mortars, which were used to hold all the bricks together. The egg yolks were allegedly supposed to strengthen the holding power of the mortar. On the bridge itself you can find two Charles Bridge Towers both standing on each end of the bridge, Baroque Statues (the most popular one is probably the St. John of Nepomuk). The Charles Bridge belongs to one of the most visited sights in Prague and you shouldn’t miss it too!
