We visited in the evening when the tower and bridge was lit up. What a grand old tower to the entrance of the bridge. We didn't visit insdie due to the queues and having no time to wait, but it was pretty impressive.

This tower has great views over Charles Bridge. There are a lot of steps up, but it is worth it. However, it is not the cheapest to enter.
