I would like to invite you to a guided walk on Charles Bridge. You will learn more about the original paths and connections, the forerunners of the stone bridge, its construction process, times, centuries, ups and downs, glorious periods, generous patrons, builders and artists. You will hear the stories of sculptures and their authors. We will look at the statues and their faces, we will look for the original statues, comparing modern copies, we will discuss where some copies of the statues are stored and why they were created, but we will also search for frogs and lizards on the bridge or a portraits of some of the sculptors. Maybe there will be time for legends.
The walk lasts an hour and a half, is public, the price is per person. The tour is primarily conducted in the Czech language. If a foreign visitor also arrives, it will be additionally translated into English. Part of the walk is a comfortable conference listening device, which you get borrowed at the beginning - worn hanging around your neck + plus you will receive a headphone.
