Charles Bridge is a stone Gothic bridge that connects the Old Town and Lesser Town (Malá Strana). It was actually called the Stone Bridge (Kamenný most) during its first several centuries. Its construction was commissioned by Czech king and Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV and began in 1357.
In charge of the construction was architect Petr Parléř whose other works include the St. Vitus Cathedral at the Prague Castle. The bridge was built from Bohemian sandstone. It is also said that egg yolks were mixed into the mortar to strengthen the construction of the bridge.
The bridge is 516 metres (1,692 ft) long and nearly 10 metres (33 ft) wide, resting on 16 arches shielded by ice guards. 📸: @jerzy.michalka, @care4art, @ournextflight, @vetrana, @seckinyilmaz#architectanddesign
