    The Old Town Bridge Tower is one of the most impressive Gothic buildings in the world. Emperor Charles IV built the tower together with the bridge according to the designs of Peter Parler in the mid-14th century. The gate to the old town was also designed as a symbolic triumphal arch, which Czech kings have crossed on their royal route. To enjoy the unforgettable view, visitors must climb 138 steps to the walkway.prague.eu/de/objekt/orte/197/altstadter-bruckenturm-staromestska-mostecka-vez

    You can go up the tower. After several steps, there is a room where you can buy tickets to get even higher.

    The imposing 40m high defense tower was built at the same time as the Charles Bridge. The construction was conceived as a fortification and a symbol of the Luxembourg-Bohemian rule. The facades are decorated with statues of bishops, secular princes and the Bohemian patron saint St. Vitus. The tower is accessible.Opening hours:

    The distinctive Old Town Bridge Tower (Staroměstská mostecká věž) has been guarding the entrance to Prague's Old Town district for over 600 years. It also serves as a gateway to the historic Charles Bridge, which spans the Vltava River at this point. Marvel at the Gothic Old Town Bridge Tower in all its architectural glory. The balcony also offers a fantastic view.

    Absolute "banger" - must see. Please imagine the tower was shelled during the 30 years war ....
