- Charles Bridge
The Charles Bridge is perhaps one of the most recognizable old bridge of Europe. The distinct style of the bridge provides a beautiful sight both from afar and while on the bridge. Statues can be found on both sides of the bridge, and people often come here to make wishes. The bridge has a history of superstition, as legend says that Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV himself laid the first stone of the bridge at exactly 5:31 am on July 9th in 1357. This exact time was chosen because Charles IV was a strong beliver of numerology and thought that it would give the bridge additional strength. The numbers form a numerical bridge (135797531).
