"The Charles Bridge is a famous historic bridge
that crosses the Vltava river in Prague, Czech Republic.
Its construction started in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV,
and finished in the beginning of the 15th century."
"Charles IV (Czech: Karel IV., German: Karl IV., Latin: Carolus IV; 14 May 1316 – 29 November 1378),
born Wenceslaus, was the second King of Bohemia from the House of Luxembourg,
and the first King of Bohemia also to become Holy Roman Emperor."

Thank you, Laurie! :-)Delete
We found the best Italian restaurant outside Italy.
The Charles Bridge is a wonderful piece of architecture and you were fortunate to see it with relatively few people on it.ReplyDelete
Early bird special! ;-)Delete
Hi there Merisi. I was just thinking you had to be an early bird to get on this bridge by your lonesome. Boy those are some threatening skies in that one photo. Loving the early morning bride! I snapped a photo of a bride and groom in the afternoon traffic of St Michael's cathedral, so trapped by tourists that they couldn't move...let alone have their photo taken...lol, rather a small miscalculation. :) Also, she looked like a giant, puffy meringue and so that made her moving around even more difficult, so they just stood there.ReplyDelete
Anyway, I'm off to see more of your posts and get to know you a little better. :)
i love these shots and that you and Veronica are 'meeting' via them .. two of my favorite bloggers!ReplyDelete
I have been missing you, resting more these days, staying curled up and when I visit, I am always presented a smile... always charming little glimpses into what you walk past in a day in your life and we thank you for sharing~ReplyDelete
Wow! So lovely. Our Lonely Planet guide to Prague arrived yesterday.....our plans begin!ReplyDelete
I like your last photo very much. It belongs on the cover of a story book for children. Their imagination could make that an entrance to another world of mystery and beauty. Thank youReplyDelete
Incredible shots. I really like that bridge.ReplyDelete
Merisi, everyone whom I know who've been to Prague have really loved the city. It's fun to see your take on this beautiful, somewhat fairytale sort of place. I don't much admire the graffiti on the walls, but the rest looks fabulous.ReplyDelete
Please do show us more and more Prague.
Thanks for sharing
