One of the most iconic landmarks of Prague is the beautiful Charles Bridge. Completed in 1402 to allow carriages and pedestrians to cross the Vltava River, the Charles Bridge is now mostly a tourist attraction and is filled with buskers an hawkers. The bridge itself is a work of art lined with ornate statues of Catholic Saints. On our holidays to Prague, we’ll have the opportunity to admire the statues and embellishment up close as we stroll along this historic bridge.
This slice of Prague’s ‘Stare Mesto’ contains the remains of the once-thriving neighbourhood of Josefov, the city’s former Jewish ghetto. Inside the Jewish Quarter, there are a half-dozen old synagogues, a ceremonial hall and the powerfully melancholic Old Jewish Cemetery. Perversely preserved by Nazi leaders who declared them to be a 'museum of an extinct race', these buildings instead have survived as a memorial and reminder of seven centuries of oppression. On our trips to Prague, we’ll have the opportunity to visit this area with an expert guide to give us the context and history of what we’re seeing.
