Padlocks on the Charles Bridge. Charles Bridge will never cease to fascinate painters, photographers and poets who flatter him in his works. When the first rays of the sun touch the ground and illuminate the massive cobblestone Gothic towers at both ends, hard look to find a more romantic place. With the imposing Prague Castle silhouette background and gallery of Baroque statues on the sides, it is not surprising that belongs to the most beautiful in Europe. One of the many legends that the construction of Charles Bridge was opened by Czech King and Roman Emperor Charles IV in 1357 exactly on 9 month 7 at 5 hours 31 minutes. The reason was a favorable constellation of the Sun and Saturn and the fact that this date corresponds to the line of odd numbers one to nine, and vice versa. Perhaps the magic combination of numbers 1-3-5-7-9-7-5-3-1 gave the bridge its strength, beauty, and the admiration of millions of visitors from around the world. Another legend says that the mass at which there were the stones for the construction of the bridge would add eggs, wine and milk. All this had to provide the perfect bridge to stability over the centuries. Charles Bridge can enter through the Old Town and Malá Strana.
