Charles Bridge Scaffolding - how long for?

by thealbertross

Hi all,

Just learnt the disappointing news of the Charles Bridge being covered in scaffolding, and I was wondering how long it is due to go on for?
I will be travelling in late April - will the construction work be finished then?

Work started in late 2008 and is scheduled to continue through 2010.

Scaffolding is the bane of travellers everywhere - there's no getting away from it. No matter where you go these days you can be sure at least one thing you really want to see is undergoing restoration. The other eyesore encountered more and more is the seating, staging, lighting gantries, etc associated with summer festivals. There's nothing quite like it for ruining the atmosphere of ancient amphitheatres, temples, etc.

I've no idea about how long the Charles Bridge will be covered up like this, but I wouldn't be holding my breath!

Re: Charles Bridge Scaffolding - how long for?

Unfortunately the bridge will still be scaffolded during your visit, biut there are many fun options for crossing the River Vlatva. However, you did pick the best time of year to visit this great city. The many flowering trees and shrubs should all be in bloom (talk about adding colour to the city), the weather should be great, and there are not near as many tourists as in summer. Fortunately, Karluv most (the bridge) is only one of hundreds of great attractions in and in the vicinity of Praha. Enjoy your trip and don't be afraid to visit the places where most tourists dare not tread. (see my Prague page for off-the-beaten path opportunities especially for April)

Thanks everyone. Its a shame it will still be covered, but this will be my second trip to Czech Republic, so its not such a bummer. I suppose its best to get the landmark sorted than to have it crumble into the Vlatva.

It was the Tyn church that was under awning on my last trip in 2007, so its going to be one thing or another!!!

Im also planning a short flit down to Karlstejn, so heres hoping the castle will still be visible. :D

Scaffolding is covering just some part of the bridge. You can see todays status live here:

Travel Tips for Prague

Gothic Cathedral

by Ivik

Beautiful outside, but probably not what I was expecting inside!!!!

The architecture is just wonderful, even that it was altereded a few times...
Inside is just a normal Gothic church... it's not worth to pay the ticket to access the back side of the church!

Hermosa por fuera, pero probablemente no lo que esperaba del interior!!!!

La arquitectura es simplemente maravillosa, aunque fue modificada un par de veces...
Por dentro es solo una Iglesia Gotica... no vale la pena pagar el ticket para acceder a la parte trasera de la Iglesia!

Public Toilets

by M0B1US

OK, a somewhat strange tip but then I was so taken aback by the condition of public toilets in Prague that I simpy had to post this tip!!! Indeed, I am so moved (so to speak!) to write this tip that I may make commentaries of the state of public toilets for all my pages... ;-)

Now, I'm not sure what I was expecting being that I was visiting a former East Bloc state that is relatively poorer than rich western countries - but Prague was a relieving revelation, shall we say... ;-)

Public toilets or WC's are everywhere in Prague - I mean you can't walk more than a few hundred metres before yet another one!

They are also almost always free even in the major tourist areas - the noteable exception is by the Kinsky Palace in the Old Square charging 7 crowns.

But, above all, they are almost uniformly clean and well maintained with plenty of loo paper and lockable doors, which is important when I consider some of the places I have visited in the world where none of the above is routine like - shockingly - Italy for example, where many of whose public toilets are little better than the worst that the 3rd World has to offer!

10/10 Prague!

Sharing a table

by vanessadb

It is quite common when you go to eat at restaurants, to be seated with another person or couple. This usually doe snot happen in touristy restaurants but it does at the ones that have a local crowd.

So don't be surprised, and take advantage of that: that person usually lives there and know everything about the town you are actually trying to discover!

Church of St Ignatius

by ZiOOlek

It is a typical Baroque Jesuit church built by Carlo Lurago, who started in 1665, and Paul Ignatz Bayer. The later added the church's tower in 1687. The church was supposed to impress people with the power and glamour of the Jesuits' faith, so there are lots of stuccowork and statues of Jesuit and Czech saints.

The ossuary in Kutna Hora. ...

by clairo

The ossuary in Kutna Hora. This is very strange, but if your even a little bit intrigued by the macabe it is an absolute must see! This otherwise normal church and cemetary was overrun with plague victim corpses, and in the late 19th century a local artisan was comissened to create sculpture out of the human bones that were crowding the cemetary. The result is bizzare and very beatutiful. Once there (Kutna Hora) check out the old mines, and the cathedral. Plan on spending a day but not much more.
