On the Old Town side of Charles Bridge, this Gothic tower built in 1373 is flanked by sculptures of St Vitus and Charles IV. Open to the public,it offers excellent views of the Old Town and the Vltava River to visitors who climb the narrow staircase. The tower once displayed the heads of twelve Protestant leaders executed in 1621, and was also the site of the final conflict of the Thirty Years War (1618-1648).

A commanding start to the charming Charles Bridge, with a nice small square to the side. The square offers a different view of the Charles Bridge, along with the abundance of lovers locks. The Tower is climbable inside, albeit crowded, steep, and narrow.

Excellent view from the top of the tower. Just be careful with the spiders, especially in the late evening, they're everywhere, and some of them are really big

The Old Town Bridge Tower is a nice place in the old part of Prague. You pass the bridge while going from the old town to charles bridge. The bridge is an architectural marvel and attracts a lot of people

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
