Map of Charles Bridge Museum in Prague
Charles Bridge Museum explores the history of Prague's famous river crossing, the 14th century Charles Bridge, which links the Old Town with the Lesser Town.

The Charles Bridge Museum (Muzeum Karlova Mostu) explains in some detail the structure of the bridge, and outlines the various stages of its construction.

It does this through miniature models, artefacts and replica parts, showing the materials used, the tools required, and the people who worked on it.

This visual approach, combined with some explanations in English, make it easy for people of all nationalities to grasp the process.

Furthermore, exhibits help you understand the lives of the people who built the bridge, and of what Prague was like during this early medieval period.

The museum is located below water level, a few metres along the river from Charles Bridge. This is important, for it was at this point where its predecessor, Judith Bridge, the first stone bridge in Prague, crossed the river.

And visitors to the Charles Bridge Museum will see part of the original foundations of Judith Bridge on their tour.

Judith Bridge was washed away by a huge flood in 1342, an event which prompted the construction of Charles Bridge.

In a separate area of the museum are the foundations of the Gothic Krizovnicka Church. These lie below present day St. Francis Church, which was built over Krizovnicka during the Baroque period.
