Beatufilu Tower

This is one of the beatiful towers at Prague at the entrance of the bridge! There's always a huge crowd here. At night with the lights this makes for a perfect place for pictures.

The little doorway is really easy to miss as you enter/exit Charles Bridge from the Old Town side. The ticket provides you with a nice snippet of history, and the view is... More

If visiting Charles Bridge it is well worth the climb up the tower. Great views and a great place to watch the hustle and bustle from.

It could be crowed at a time. Taking my time to walk this bridge and see what those vendors have to sell. It's a nice bridge, all the crowd / tourist walking by. Just like back in those days - the old days without cars
