Old Town Bridge Tower
Lonely Planet review for Old Town Bridge Tower
Perched at the eastern end of Charles Bridge, this elegant late-14th-century tower was built not only as a fortification but also as a triumphal arch marking the entrance to the Old Town. Like the bridge itself, it was designed by Peter Parler and incorporates many symbolic elements. The main justification for paying the admission fee is the amazing view from the top of the tower.
