On the Old Town side of Charles Bridge, this Gothic tower built in 1373 is flanked by sculptures of St Vitus and Charles IV. Open to the public,it offers excellent views of the Old Town and the Vltava River to visitors who climb the narrow staircase. The tower once displayed the heads of twelve Protestant leaders executed in 1621, and was also the site of the final conflict of the Thirty Years War (1618-1648).

It is well worth the climb to the top of this imposing tower for the views, not only of Charles Bridge, but also the wider castle district. Despite what others have said, it is not a steep climb but relatively easy for anyone who is...More

Pay a little bit of money to go up the tower and look over Prague from the city center. Was a good view over to the castle and an easy climb.

This is a beautiful Gothic architecture style tower on one end of the world famous Charles Bridge. I stood under the tower and enjoyed viewing it from there itself, and as it was quite crowded, decided not to climb up the bridge. You walk into...More

A spur of the moment decision which I'm glad we took. The staircase is square, meaning there are no narrow sections to lose your footing, and it's wide enough to pass people going in the other direction. About half way up is the kiosk where...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
