Praga, Puente Carlos / Prague, Charles’ Bridge

Como escribí en el post anterior,luego de la visita al reloj Astronómico nos fuimos al Puente Carlos.

El puente Carlos es el mas viejo de Praga, data de 1357, y era la única  forma de atravesar el rió,  y comunicaba la ciudad vieja con el castillo de Praga.

A lo largo del puente hay treinta estatuas que representan varios santos y santos patrones.

Aunque ahora hay otros puentes que unen ambos lados de la ciudad, es bonito atravesar el puente Carlos,  ver las estatuas que lo adornan y admirar la ciudad vieja y el castillo.

Con estas fotos del atardecer terminamos nuestro primer día en Praga.

 

As I wrote in the previous post, after a visit to the Astronomical clock , we went to Charles’ Bridge.

Charles’ Bridge is the oldest bridge of Prague, dating from 1357, and was the only way to cross the river, it used to connect the old town with the Prague Castle

Along the bridge there are thirty statues depicting various saints and patrons.

Altought there are now other bridges connecting both sides of the city, it is really pretty to cross Charles’ Bridge, see the statues that adorn it and admire the old town and castle.

With these photos of the sunset  we ended our first day in Prague.
