Charles Bridge & Bridge Towers

Karlův most, Prague 1, Czech Republic

Built in 1357, the Charles Bridge’s first bricks were laid down by King Charles himself, arguably Prague’s most lauded leader. The time and date of construction beginning is noted: July 9, 1357 at 5:31pm. The palindromic qualities resonated in a society that took astrology and dates very seriously. The bridge separates Mala Strana from Old Town and is pedestrian-only.
