Charles Bridge is the oldest preserved bridge in Prague. From 1883, there used to be horse trams passing across the bridge, replaced in 1905 by electrical line. In order to preserve the artistic view of the bridge and not to ruin it by wires leading at the top, Frantisek Křižík came with a special line through the bridge deck. Yet the heavy carriages vibrated the construction, and thus were replaced by buses in 1908.
Charles Bridge is the most imporant tourist attraction in Prague. Mornings are usually crowded, visit in the dawn will allow you to soak in the atmosphere and beauty of this bridge. Street performances are common view here.
